Found 18th Jul 2017
Just bought this device as I wanted to watch all my Virgin channels in the bedroom and it is perfect. Did not want to pay extra £10pm for the additional box and extra fitting. Price is normally £199.99 and on sale elsewhere at full price, but Currys currently have this excellent deal. Took me 5mn to set up. I was worried about the distance after seeing some reviews, but mine is around 7m from the satellite and no issues at all - Full HD and seamless. I would recommend if you want this functionality. Seems a really good price/deal to me. Great for second room.

Reviews are terrible...

Perhaps you need a really good internet connection for it to work ?

I did not have any issues and really simple to set up. My internet is just standard Virginmedia speed, so not sure why some negative. But it looks like some tried long distance for connection and had issues. It seems to depend how many walls/thickness etc.. But I have one wall, plus the floor to upstairs and perfect.

From what I've read it's not connected to the Internet. Doesn't actually suggest it needs to be connected to your router. Sends it's own 5ghz signal which is short range

Has to be 5ghz as 2.4 is too congested

Yes correct. I just plugged the HDMI from the Virgin box into the HDMI in on the sender, then it has HDMI out which goes to my 1st tv. Plugged the receiver box into my TV upstairs and it automatically syncs and all done!! :-) Really easy

I don't think you will be able to change channels remotely. So if you want to change channels on the Virgin box you will have to go down to the Virgin box.
The traditional way of doing this (sending the output of a Sky/Virgin box to multiple tvs was to send the rf output back to the distribution amplifier (usually in the loft) unfortunately this will only give ordinary 625 analogue tv (low resolution) to the other sets. The advantage (at least for sky boxes) was that using a small device by the other tvs, you could change channels of the sky box.
Could be handy for Sky Q if it works as you can get a Bluetooth remote to get round that issue. Do these not come with ir blasters?

I have a similar device and the signal is not very strong, can just about do the room directly above the lounge but none of my other bedrooms - the sky Bluetooth remote can send a signal all across my house so if did work would be great solution.

Same price on amazon, there is a wait for stock but if it doesn't work you can send it back. Good luck with sending it back to Curry's.
£99 .............. That £90 more expensive than anyone should pay for sending a signal around the house. There are multiple ways to achieve this without forking out on 1990s kit like this
elaborate?

Multiple ways yes, but for £9? We're all waiting for the deal link on that one!
Very interested in this post .... Is the virgin box the new V6 or the original Tivo ?

I had a similar sender with scart when i had tivo box .. never a problem .

Changed to V6 box 4 months ago .... and learnt that as it had no scart .. but an HDMI ... therefore had to buy new sender .. bought this One for all model ( £149 in maplins at the time) .

"plug & play" set up dead easy .... picture quality on receiving tv is fine ..... you can change channels & volume independently ( bought extra remote on *bay for £9)

BUT ... do have a problem ...... totally random .... every 3 days on average ..... the tv suddenly goes off ... the half the times the tv and programme will come back on after 5-15 seconds ... but the other half of times .. the tv goes off , stays off ... after 15-30 seconds the "virgin welcome screen" comes on ... and it goes through the 2 to 4 minute reboot restart procedure .
If anything is recording it will start up a second recording when rebooted but you miss the few minutes .

I emailed One For All .. and got their very poor , foreign based and grammar customer service to give me various responses over about a 14 day period .. which ultimately said " we don't know of a problem .. must be a Virgin issue .. return your sender to us for refund if you want" !

I have tried to contact virgin tech .. on phone and online chat ... but true to form .. after a dozen attempts over a month and never getting past "we're busy" i've given up and just putting up with the problem .

I did try and see on Google if i could find any forums chat on this issue .. but didn't.

So whether it's the sender ..or virgin box .. no idea . I wouldn't be suprised if Virgin have built something into their software to cause a problem .. they clearly do not want people to use senders !.
Is your main TV a 4K model?
A sony from 6 years ago...guess not /

Hi, thanks. Yes I can change the channels in the other room as the receive device also has a IR receiver that works with the Virgin remote. So all is great :-)

That's good, pity it doesn't mention that in the information! Probably then it would do the same for Sky
Yes, will work for SKY also :-) Just use your standard remote as One For All makes the genuine Sky remotes also I have seen :-)

Whatever you choose to use the SV1760 for, it makes sure that the data transfer is kept safe and protected by 128/256 bit AES based encryption. Signals are transmitted within the 5 GHz frequency band, allowing for interference-free streaming.

Whether you are streaming content from your set top box, DVD or Blu-ray player, projector, games console or another HDMI-enabled device, you can control them with their stand remote control from a different room.

Installation is quick and easy; simply connect the transmitter unit to your HDMI device and the receiver unit with your TV.
