AV Sender? Digisender?? Help!! Which do i need?!

I have tried looking for info on various sites, but the more i read the more i get confused :(

I have a TV and Virgin Media box in my front room (middle floor) and a TV with built-in freeview in my kitchen (ground floor).

There is no aerial socket in the kitchen so have been looking for some sort of sender..... It would have to be wireless and ideally i would want the kitchen TV to work independantly from the front room tele, so different channels can be watched on both teles.... does this exist???

Please help - its driving me mad!!!!

Bought digi sender from tesco for about £20 quid, picture is perfect as long as i dont switch my wireless modem on bcos it interferes with it!!!

You can buy those senders with a higher frequency so they dont clash with wifi...

edit... try looking up 5.8Ghz in general....Nikkai HQ 5.8GHz Video Sender

Thank you. It says i can change channel from the other room - so would have to have same channel on both tvs.... maybe this is the only way??

it means you 'can' by just aiming youre remote in the second room, but yes and no to your question :p

if someone was watching the main tv in lounge, you would have to use the output from a VCR/dvd/tuner showing my age now rofl... or from a freeview box dedicated to the kitchen. this wouldn't affect the main tv.

However if you for instance only had one freeview box and thats what you wanted to use on both then you would have to keep the same channel....

but as freeview boxes are cheep as.......
There are at least 3 or 4 of the 5.8 boxes available, but some have some issues so do a bit of research :thumbsup:

HTH

You lost me! I just dont understand how it all works :(

OK not sure which bit lost you , so I'll start from scratch....
The digisender you bought was almost certainly 2.4ghz frequency along with numerous other wireless items in your house/the surrounding area... hence the interference...

The 5.8Ghz units I suggested tend to be more expensive, but 'less' likely to be affected so badly by interference, as there is far less on that waveband...

first off have you tried the different 'wireless'channels on your current digisender? there might be some improvement, if not totally diminished...(this is the frequency adjustment on the digi-sender, NOT tv channels.


Ok then theres the changing channels (tv) which can be done in the kitchen to change the channel(tv) of the input device being used in the lounge.

if you want to watch freeview for instance in the kitchen, you need a dedicated freeview box or source feeding the digisender in the lounge to transmit to the kitchen. THEN a freeview box or tv to watch what you like in the lounge.

edit... did you change your first post LOl there seems to be more info now LOL...

ok you need a seperate feed (freeviewbox) other than the virgin box if you want to be able to watch different programs....

Forgive the editing bit.... having just re-read from the start I realise the second post wasn't yours, hence I was answering yours and makershakers post about interference as one :oops:

chuckle, yeah you have it a second source, freeview box, vcr, dvd recorder, pvr. etc scart to digisender in lounge, then digisender to tv in kitchen.

You could use a passthrough from you scart out on the VM box, but then you would be changing both tv's at once, so as you suggest you'll need a sole tuner feed to keep them seperate :)

Sorry for the confusion....

as with Makershakers post however these senders can be subject to interference and thus are not allways 'suitable' . especially if you have blutooth,wifi microwave etc etc. really is a suck it and see..
assuming theres no way of getting a coax feed (aerial )
to the Kitchen of course so you can use the TV's own tuner.

Good luck with it:thumbsup:
