Looks like a shaver.

SCART connection on these units.
#2
this looks like a good idea - are they any good?

Is it worth paying more for better ones or are they all much of a muchness?

I've been thinking about getting a 2nd telly for the dining room to encourage me to run on the treadmill we have in there.
#3
Yeah anyone used these before? Read a few reviews on amazon of other manufactuers ones seems to be a bit hit and miss with interference issues esp when Wireless routers/ mobile phones are nearby
#4
Running the risk of stating the bleedin obvious, these are wireless between the two tv's but you need to plug both into the mains each end to power them. They don't just slot into your scart socket as is and start working. I know many people will know that but if you've never had them before the photo's can be potentially misleading.

As for performance, the ones I've used have been all as good/bad as each other. Over average distances (10m ish horizontal or vertical) they are ok, but if you have thick stone walls or the like they can be pretty bad.

I've been running a tesco technika one of these for over 2 years in my house. It is connected to the 2nd scart on my Humax PVR and sends the signal to a 32" sammy in the bedroom. The only inteference I get is when the microwave is on. Picture and sound quality is fine, only very slight degradation. I even managed to pick up another receiver unit from a car boot for 50p and this is in another bedroom and works fine too.
Having said all that, my father in law bought the same tesco unit for their bungalow and the picture was grainy and kept breaking up. The distance was about half I'm currently using it for in my house so my advice would be to "borrow" one from argos or tesco before you get one from cdiscount.
#6
Thanks for that guys, I'm going to give these a miss and look out for some better ones. I've been looking around and it seems that 2.4 GHz are generally not much good (although I'm reading a lot of hit and miss reviews as well)
#7
Just a word of warning for those who have WiFi: These use 2.4Ghz wireless range (the same as WiFi), and you can get really bad interferance (thick horizontal lines going up and down your screen) if you have WiFi running in your house, or possibly even if your neighbours use it.

We used to use these so we could watch Sky in the kitchen but once we started using WiFi the picture became unwatchable so we don't use them anymore.

You can get some that work using a 5.8ghz range, so that they don't suffer from interferance from WiFi on the 2.4ghz range, but they are a lot more expensive than the 2.4ghz ones.

The cheapest I have seen any of 5.8Ghz ones is £59.98 from amazon (See below link)

Can you control your PVR from the bedroom i.e. have you got a version which accepts a remote signal?

Ive been looking at something for the bedroom about to buy a new LCD set ideally would like a set up similar to yours (wouldnt need to watch on both sets simultaneously)

Just wondered if you just play something and get yourself into the bedroom or if you can control the Humax from in there
#9
Another warning to those using a V+ box with HD out. The box wont output to scart at the same time and so its useless for these! Unless your telly has scart out I guess... but then you cant control the box as far as I know! :oops:

wot he said
#11
These all are useless no matter how much you spend, 2.4GHz is too crowded and affected by people crossing the signal path. The signal is composite video and therefore the lowest possible quality and the material your house is built from has a big effect too. 5.8GHz will be even more vulnerable to the walls it passes through. Run a cable, but don't get ripped off doing it.

yep, it has a sensor that sits in front of the pvr. Hence I can watch recorded stuff on TVs elsewhere in the house.
Like I said earlier best get one from somewhere you can return it easily as they are definitely hit and miss.

Nope, just the knowledge that these are limited to a maxium power [100mW if memory serves], use AM modulation for the video, which is inherently suscceptible to white speckles, signal fading by moving objects and wasteful in power, and send composite video, a poor choice for picture quality from even the cheapest modern source.

Because they all us the same fundamentally limited technology, they can be catagorically branded as crap, crap by design.

Spend on cables, it is the only way currently to move quality pictures to other rooms. Soon (in about 3 years) there will be digital wireless cable replacements, but curretntly you are looking at £800 for a distance of a few metres, so cable it and be done.
#15
Yeah 2.4ghz is ok as long as you're not sitting on the wireless laptop while watching it. Quality is akin to old school VHS tapes, so if you're watching say Arnie or JCVD then it's full on 80s-tastic!
#16
I bought some 2.4GHZ ones a few months back, initially did get interference with the wi-fi, kept logging me off the net and picture interference on the TV. After speaking to my ISP (orange) they advised changing the channel that my router used. Did that and now get perfect picture/sound and no interference. Have not got any neighbours with wi-fi though. Good price though if they work.

Good point

Additionally. DECT phones use the same 2.4Ghz spectrum, and could interfere with this sender.

Pay the extra and go for the 5.8Ghz models
#18
I bought a cheap pair of these from halfords a few years back (not same model i dont think) and I had to take them back as the picture quality was unwatchable. There was no wireless router in our house at the time so it must have been the neighbours.
#19
I have a couple of 2.4GHz One-for-All in my house sending TV from downstairs to a CRT in the bedroom. I only use them when I go to bed and have to switch off wireless in the house to stop the interference but I'm more than happy with them.
#20
Quick question... I can't see anywhere on the site that mentions 10% account credit?
#21
I've been using the tesco kit for 2 years - tried the Maplin 5.8ghz kit this week and it was even worse!!!

I'm sticking with the original kit until I can get another virgin box in the bedroom as no roof arial connections in my master bedroom
#22
We had similar to these on the 2.4GHz range, and were completely sh!te.

Reason we got them was so I could use the Wii while the missus/kids could watch Sky in the other room...all well and good apart from the fact that the Wii wi-fi completely destroyed the picture. Not to mention the laptop / wireless router, mobile, next doors wi-fi, full moon etc.

Cable it and enjoy the results.:thumbsup:
#23
I bought a set (Philex branded) a few years ago and found that I got a good picture quality (considering it was composite) but the sound was dreadful made it impossible to watch anything. I think with wireless and dect phones they really struggle.
#24
After getting some terrible ones from Asda and Argos which I returned due to sound and picture interference I got some of these

http://www.allegro.pl/item687531968_video_sender_firmy_medion_komfort_w_twoim_domu.html

from aldi a couple of years back and they have been working fine for sending TV from the living room up to teh bedroom. It is only a small LCD Im sending to so maybe the picture would be worse on a bigger set but on the whole Im very happy with them. There are occasional instances of sound interference whereby you get odd clicking noises but whereas these were almost constant with the other models I tried with this one it hardly ever happens and when it does can usually be fixed by adjusting the antennae. One last point is when they are in auto transmit mode if theres lots of flashing imagery on screen they cut out, I think it interprets it as static ie no picture, before cutting back in once the flashing imagery has dissapeared.
#25
I have tried both 2.4GHZ and the 5.8GHZ Digisender, I highly recommend getting 5.8GHZ, the 2.4 model was useless , the 5.8 GHZ wasn't great but it partially worked, I would get video the majority of the time except a occasional fuss (which was annoying if you had the TV turned up) and the ratio seemed to slightly screw up, with some small green bar along the top.

Now we just run a cable outside and along to the bedroom and use a cheapo magic eye for £10 from Tesco, immaculate picture.

I don't use wireless but I believe it was picking up all 3 of my neighbors wireless signal. (I have a house behind mine too), But spot on with the VHS quality even with 5.8 it was..
#26
had one of these would not work no matter what i did so got a refund.
#27
I hate these type of devices, play havoc not only do they give a poop picture they intefere with wireless networks they also manage to swamp half the channels and make using the wi-fi network horrible.
