DLNA Compatibility?

I have a DLNA media server attached to my RG. I can see the contents on all my DLNA enabled devices but have several TVs that do not have WiFi. I was wondering if there is a way to have the RG and set top boxes relay the video to those TVs?

How are the receivers connected to the wall on the TV's with no WiFi?  If the ethernet port on the back of the receiver is not in use, you can plug a patch cord from there to the TV.  This is not supported by AT&T but I have two TV's connected this way

The TVs are all connected to their respective set top boxes either through HDMI cables or RCA cables. The receivers are mostly connected to the network via coax with one wireless receiver. Not sure what you mean about connecting the TVs via CAT5 as none of the TVs have Ethernet save for the one with WiFi.

Sorry...I assumed that the TV's were smart TV's but didn't have wireless.  This might be an option for you: http://www.att.com/esupport/article.jsp?sid=KB401476&cv=803#fbid=9Jpej2BdgNl

Unfortunately, it won't stream video and requires a Windows OS. My media server is Unix and integrated into a WD MyCloud NAS. Thanks anyway...getting closer.
