Using the 2.4GHz frequency this includes a transmitter, a receiver and a remote control extender. I know that it's the old frequency that isn't supposed to be as good as the latest 5.8GHz but it works perfectly for me (so hopefully for others as well).

I found these in the Thurmaston, Leicester branch of Asda marked up as £23 (reduced from £39). When I paid they scanned at £11.75. IMHO they're well worth a punt at that price and if they don't work for you, take them back. No idea if this is national or not.

I'm pretty sure these are available in oxford home store if anyone intrested.

problem with 2.4ghz is that pretty much every wireless device in your house (router, phone, even doorbell...) runs on the same frequency. I'd say if you have any wireless devices, the chances of you being able to use these with zero interference is pretty slim.....

Good price though

I totally understand what you're saying but in my house they work almost perfectly. I have a doorbell, router, cordless phones etc... Every house will be different so there's no guarantee of a good signal anywhere. But...at 11 quid they're worth trying.

These normally have 4 channels to avoid conflicts with other wireless networks. I had a pair to get Sky on upstairs TV.
However, the picture quality was like analogue TV from the 80s, the signal could be interfered with by people walking past etc, and sometimes needed adjusting of the receiver for each channel.
After a few weeks I gradually used it less and less, and turned to other means to get multi-room on the cheap such as connecting my TV to my PC for Sky Go, iPlayer, YouTube etc
I'd not bother with this unless you really can't find an alternative.

definitely definitely YMMV

I had one set to get from one room to another, on the same floor, separated by one room and only 1 door. The wifi, phone and microwave all interfered with it disastrously and I eneded up going to the pain of sticking a cable in.

However if they work, deffo heat

Tried this exact set and they were useless.
Avoid, even at this price.

Have to agree these are rubbish, had some before and they would always knockout my wireless router, heat for the price though

Would this transmit wireless internet so could use Sky anytime?

youd have more luck with two paper cups and a piece of string.

Go for the baked beans tins everytime ......................

Avoid these like the plague they are rubbish, even tried the 5.4gHz ones (they work worse as the signal is on a diff frequency to most common things like wireless, wireless phones etc) but they are crap at penetrating walls...

As a few people have said, these are crappy. 5.8Ghz ones are usable, 2.4Ghz ones though, If you have any amount of technology in your home, like wifi, ect... Don't even contemplate getting these. If there's any way you can route cable to the destination instead of getting these, do it!

For me buying TV senders was one of the biggest waste of money i've had. No substitute for running a cable.

on a + note, they do change the channel by re-transmitting the IR code back to the source also.
