Why don't you just get a video card for your server
with a TV out. Then use a video splitter to
distribute the signal throughout your house. This way
you will be able to see the browser interface on any
TV in the house. Of course, I'm a assuming you have a
dedicated server for your Squeezeboxes/SLIMP3's. I
have a TV out on mine going to my television (with a
modified Fishbone skin to make fonts bigger, show more
information, album art etc.) and it's great.
