Seems a decent price for what it is/does. A cheap alternative to a wireless home distribution kit.:
Distributes TV and FM radio signals around the home up to 4 rooms.
Supplied with a compact high gain 4-outlet distribution amplifier, 25 metres of coaxial cable,4 coaxial fly leads, 3 outlet boxes, coaxial connectors and fixings.
Supplied with full fitting instructions.

Instore only as not available for home delivery; but they have stock in my area so hopefully they will in yours.

If you vote cold could you please explain why. I don't personally know enough about this type of product, but stumbled upon it and like I say, compared to the much more expensive option, this seemed pretty good to me. Thanks.

do these have the digital pass through that means you can use the sky remote through them?

Can anyone recommend a good wireless solution?

Can anyone recommend a good wireless solution?

No. There are no good wireless solutions.

Wireless senders are analogue 2.4GHz, they will
1 totally smother your WiFi network
2 Give a grainy noisy picture
3 lose signal as people move around your house
4 be affected by mains surges from your fridge freezer
5 generally be a dissapointment

Your options are Slingbox and a Sling receiver, the Gefen digital wireless HDMI sender and xbox360 with a vista PC with an 802.11n wifi setup.

Maplin sells one that runs on 5.8ghz

Got one today as the 2.8ghz one we got yesterday was **** ( fuzzy picture and signal loss when walking around the house and terrible noise)
The 5.8ghz one works fine.

Thank you Joylove and 666FU - I shall look into the Maplin one.

So do the Slingbox, maplin wireless and wired thing all achieve the same result? Lets me go into a room without an aerial point and watch a different channel to the wired room?

They all give multiroom, but the cabled solution is the only one worth bothering with.

Wireless is not (yet) suitable for TV of the quality we expect these days, and won't be for a few years either.

The 5.8GHz one looks interesting, but it will suffer badly from reduced distances between the antennas due to the high frequency. It will also be affected by people walking around the house in the same way as the 2.4GHz one, if not more so, due to the high frequency.

Thanks for that, I'll give it a try!
