it's not bad :thumbsup: the sky remote even changes the channels :lol: it was at the thanet store & was just normal labelled on the shelf for 14.99 not a reduced label so should be the same price in all pcworld's where available :)

will this not work with virgin media?

would need more spec on this. Be careful when buying as if you purchase a 2.6ghz one it will more than likely not work if you have wireless broadband or even baby monitor in the house.

Recently had to pay out extra cash for a higher frequency of 5.8ghz as this operates above all wireless equipment.

It will work with Virgin Media but you will not be able to control the VM box remotely through the slave interface, whereas with Sky you can. Hope this helps.

That's not quite true. Older Virgin STB's use IrDA to send remote commands. If you have an old Pace 1000/1010/2000 or the Scientific Atlanta 4000/4200 then you need something like the AEI DG400 DigiSender that will handle IrDA. If you have any other STB, like the Samsung or V+ that use normal iR, then any normal AV sender should work fine. Best to search the forums for advice from someone who has your specific STB,

Label on the box wasn't STB specific, it just warned that VM boxes couldn't be controlled remotely (on the ones in Currys). Good advice to check the forums, rep added.

This is 2.4Ghz so you will get interference from your own or your neighbours wireless broadband. I too had the this problem previously so wouldn't recommend getting this even at this low price unless you and your neighbours don't use wireless broadband

I have one of these and it is poor to be truthful. I spent £60 on it and it tends to work 2 days out of 4. The other days it is just full of interference and no amount of messing about will get it working.

i have these which work great and i have my wireless internet running,the picture is fabulous,from my starview,there should be a switch on the back to change the frequency,to
stop the interference

to get my 2.4GHZ sender devices working I had to turn off wireless on my laptops, otherwise with them broadcasting the tv screen would be just full of interference, with wireless disabled, the sender works pretty well despite having neighbours with wireless

That is one damning review. it seems there still isn't an ideal wireless solution out there either.
#19
I use another model of the Philips wireless sender and it give a good picture and sound but a major problem is that the frequency that gives the best picture, blocks both my motorbike and car alarms within my drive / garage so you can't unlock them as they think they are under attack, so if you buy one and you find the AA are out side having to open your neighboughs key less car you may want to turn it off. :-D

Well, I've got Wireless Lan, a baby monitor, wireless Doorbell and cordless phones and I happily use these to pump video from my sitting room to my Dining room and Bedroom. I also can see over 10 WLANs in my vicinity. There are 4 channels to chose from so its a simple task to change channel on the sender and change your wireless to a different channel - hence no interference. If you are in a house you should be fine, flats may be a different matter.

The only interference i get is when the microwave is used, but then i'm cooking not watching TV. :whistling:
