Mind telling me what modulators you use and the approximate price?

I'm using a Netmedia MM70 Single Channel (http://www.worthdist.com/netmedia/nmmm7x.htm) and a Radio Shack that they don't list anymore (frequency set-able, aka "agile"). I will probably add either a NetMedia MM73, or possibly a ChannelVision unit.

I have a TiVo and 2 VCR's in the basement with the big screen. I also have a satellite receiver which comes in there, plus we have cable which goes everywhere. I bring some sources upstairs as a video output on dedicated cables, and I use a "rabbit" to fly some of them to other TV's on the first floor. All TV's also have coax for regular "cable." But it's clearly a hodge-podge and I would like to improve it. (We use an RCA remote-control jumper to run the clicker functions back down to the media center. That seems to work reasonably well for us.)

See the tutorial at http://www.hometech.com/learn/video.html. I get a fair amount of stuff there, because it's local to where I live now, if I'm buying a bunch of stuff I usually order it from Worthington.
