I had the old version of these from Aldi & they worked great until I got my xbox360! The xbox scans for activity from the wireless controller (even when switched off) and it played havoc with the picture.
#2
Do the new ones have the same prob? We have 2 x 360's in our house so I guess we're screwed.
#3
yeah i seen these somware the other day for 40 quid this is a good find

Aldi are pretty good with returns if you find they aren't suitable - we bought some in car DVD players and found out that we could make the region free after trying them - we just took them back a few days later and got a full refund - no questions asked. :thumbsup:

Yeah PS3 also plays havoc and what ever you do dont let anybody turn on the microwave while your watching live sport :) (Microwave makes it go crazy) . Saying that most of the time they are great and are a cheap alternative to multiroom and alot easier than running cables etc. Just make sure there is nothing thats going to affected turned on when you are using them.
#6
Yeah the problem is with these wireless video senders is they transmit at 2.4ghz, the same frequency that wireless routers, your Wii, PS3 etc transmit at, and cause interference.

There are newer ones that are more expensive, that broadcast at a different frequency 5.8ghz usually.
#7
Ah I bought a sender thing via boffer t'other day - wasn't great - one of the power adaptors is the wrong size so had to cannabilise one from another gadget - but.... I wonder if the 360 is causing the picture problems - gives off a tsschh noise every second or two and pops a line on the screen which made it unwatchable...

will unplug the 360 and see if that works.....nice tip :)

Yes you can limit inteference by changing the frequency slightly (if it has a channel selector) on the video sender....it ups the range slightly around 2.412, 2.413 etc, also if you are tech savvy, you can change the channel setting of the router which also will broadcast at a slightly different frequency within the 2.4ghz range, to be honest though you can play around for hours with it and you will always get minimal interference of some kind if you have enough wireless things in your house transmitting at 2.4ghz.

Another thing to mention if you're thinking about getting one of these is make sure you're careful when you're flicking through 'specialist' channels on a night as you never know who else might be watching :-D
#10
will this be affected by haveing my broadband orange wifi router on?

thanks

Most likely yes, most routers allow different channel settings that alter the frequency slightly, would need to look in your router settings, check your manual or google online. That may help minimise interference, but most routers would intefere to some degree without changing settings.
#12
Does this work with Sky Plus?
#13
Might look into this at my local Aldi but I'm concerned with the interference issue.
#14
Maybe a stupid question, but does this mean that someone can watch one channel in one room and someone else can watch a totally different channel in another room? Or will it have to be the same channel?
#15
Been looking for one of these this week. They are selling for this kind of price second hand on eBay. :thumbsup:

I bought some of thse, we have a PS3 and a Wireless router in the house.

The tv we tried to send them too was also the furthest away from the TV we were sending ti from.

All in all they are not bad, i wanted them because i often have uni work to do over the course of the weekend, like watching/keeping an eye on the football but couldnt because the commentary was too loud.

this way i can sit up stairs with the sound on quietish and only raise my head when the commentators get excited.

The quality is ok, sort of like looking at analogue tv having been used to freeview/sky and has a little bit of interuption from time to time.
#19
Everything intereferes with these and vice versa. Wifi, wireless alarms, ps3, xbox 360. Wii. You name it really. If you use these it destorys wi fi signal in my experience AND the picture sound quality on the senders.

Its a good price but complete waste of time for most I am afraid. I am waiting for a decent video over mains streaming solution, definately the way forward.
#20
i bought older version of this last yr. terrrible reception when 360 was plugged in!! very good pic when it was disconnected though. this version looks better as well!

LOL......saucy :w00t:

I bought something similar about two years ago, it worked fine with minimal interference from my WiFi if adjusted.

However throw a 360 into the mix and you're heading for problems, even powered off it completely distorted the picture on my TV - the only remedy was to actually physically remove the plug.
#23
i didn't have this one but the video sender i had killed off the wifi in my house. took me ages to work out why i couldn't get my laptops on the net
#24
These wont suffer from WIFI interference, but they are £60

On standard ones (ie 2.4Ghz) try the following
Changing channels on the wireless router config (they usually go 1-13 or something like that), and on the sender/reciever (you usually get 2 or 3 to pick from), you can usaually get pretty close to eliminating interference, but it a trial and error thing.

You'll need 2 tuners to do that.
e.g. you can watch the main tv using it's inbuilt tuner and send a signal to a second tv using the video or dvd recorder tuner.
#27
Can i watch normal tv in my living room and the sky channel in another ?
#28
Yep don't buy these if you have a wireless network, we used to have to turn our router off to use our philips ones!

Mine work fine with or without the router on.
They have SLIGHT interference if the laptop is left on searching for a connection when the router is off, but if connected, it is barely detectable.

For a full solution, dump wifi anyway for powerline ethernet, get a better network connection and no chance of interfering with the video sender! I only turn wireless on when I want to use the laptop in certain rooms now :-)
#30
i got a similar one and it can only transmit othe same channel (only one decoder), mine transmits the reomte commands (i bought second sky remote...)

no reason why sky + should de different

Don't Do What I Just Did!!

Didn't Look At The Title Date, Rushed Straight Out To My Local Aldi Just Before Closing Time To Be Told... The Offer Doesn't Start Untill Sunday..

Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggg
#32
Oh by the way, i'm planning on using this to transmit sky upstairs into our bedroom, how would i change channel, would a magic eye work?
#33
these are hit and miss with your broadband im afraid ive had about 4 different ones so far it was only the phillips £60 set that worked quite well and it did bump the wifi connection a few times id like to move off wifi onto them new 200mbps mains plugs but there not cheap and i havent seen any real great reviews yet all with probs...
#34
Also if your a bit savvy, you could buy the magic eye system and some cable. A bit of work, but perfect picture and no distruptions.

It seems to contradict itself in the description

Sky Eye is compatible with most IR devices (Sky, Sky+, Sky HD etc.)


Q) Does this remote kit work with Sky+? - Chris Smith
A) Only SKY not SKY+ i am afraid.


Which one is it?

So I would be better off to get this, then the Video sender, if I only wanted to use this with Sky Plus?

Pure junk

Just bought one of these yesterday not hoping for a great signal - however, I was really surprised at the quality of the signal I got on the receiver TV, it was just as good as the quality off my sky box on the main TV. And my rooms are not close together, the transmitter is placed downstairs in the living room at the front of the house and my receiver is upstairs at the back of the house in my bedroom (house is a typical 3 bed semi). There is also minimal interference when my wifi is on, but definitely worth it for £20. Looks good too!
