So I have an older house built before HDMI.  In my familyroom is a fireplace with a TV area on one side and audio area on the other.  All the speakers in the house run to the audio area.  So on the TV side I have HDMI for my TV, but my challenge is getting this to the other side with my receiver.  Run between the two are two RG6 cables. So the thought was to use a HDMI to coax adapter on one side and coax to HDMI on the other. I just care about audio and will use an HDMI splitter on the TV side.  Its only a distance of 5 or 6 feet.
 
Anyone every try anything like this?

Often. It's doable but hopefully you have RG6QS.
 
You also need to know what HDMI you're sending and the resolution. It's all doable, but sometimes it becomes the law of diminishing returns compared to running a cable and any wall repair.

HDMI and conversion never goes smoothly.  Lots of things "ought to be" possible, but most end up as a hair-pulling waste of time and money. 
 
Is there NO chance of running HDMI directly?  Up/down/over/through... what kinds of walls/floors/ceilings are involved here?  Is there baseboard?  Carpet?  There's a lot of HDMI cabling options available.
