cat5 and most nas boxes will mean you will be sending the files over the network, not video. what you need at each tv is a cheap blu-ray player that is dlna capable to plug the cat5 into and play the videos.--

My LG 3DTV has RJ45 connector & DLNA client built-in, so I can stream from my mediaserver over my LAN (wired, don't want to take any chances or slow things down even a bit) straight to my TV. Lots of new "SmartTV"s work that way. No need for a BD player strictly for that use.
If the OP -ONLY- has HDMI, then aedipuss's suggestion (or that of using a DLNA/net-aware general media player box) would be the way to go...
