What is the most inexpensive WIRELESS way to get audio (stereo) from an RCA type stereo plug source or perhaps Fiber optic source to a receiver that just has RCA inputs? total distance maybe 50'

I checked with Crutchfield their solutions are $700 to $900 end to end.
The ccRadiio solution was a $59 low power FM transmitter not sure how far that goes OR the signal quality once it gets there.

Anyone ever done this?

You could get a pair of devices for under $50 that would send video and stereo audio in one direction, and a remote control signal back, so you could operate a "set-top box" from a disconnected television.  Not sure if they still make these for analog signals, but I'm sure you can find them on eBay.

I was trying these devices when they used analog transmission, and the results were spotty.  If you had a lot of control over where to place both devices, it would help.  I imagine they came out with digital transmission for analog signals, and this could work better.

For my own purposes, I wanted to run a signal from one room to another, so I just bought a cheap (but good-looking) 50' dual RCA cable.  But I got a lot of hum, perhaps because the two rooms were on different sides of the house AC, so I bought a $15 A>D audio converter for one end, used the RCA cable as a digital coax, and used a digital coaxial (RCA) input on the receiver at the other end.  This works great!  And I figure i could use the other wire for video in an emergency (might have some hum) but I haven't tried.  You can also get single-wire 50' "premium" (cheap) RCA cables, but another way I used to do very long RCA runs, was to use a 50' or 100' coax from Radio Shack that was sold with F-connector ends, and you could get screw-on adapters for about $1.50 which would turn the F-connector into an RCA plug.

Long range low latency bluetooth probably.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
