    Advice on Wireless Senders for SKy

    Hi all,

    I have sky and am looking to use a wireless 'sender' to bounce the picture to my upstairs TV, however I have no idea what to buy.

    Im looking to be able to watch and change channels on the box upstairs, from sitting downstairs.

    Can anyone reccommend a good quality one from experience, or know where I can get one at a good price.

    So far I have found a couple but im clueless

    thanks ppl

    I got one, but it didnt work, apparently theres a real problem if you have a wireless internet connection

    Really?

    I spoke to a colleague who has both and they said they dont have a problem.

    Can you not just transmit on a different channel/Frequency?

    I have a wireless internet connection and my wirless sender is about 10 feet away from my wireless router. I have no trouble with interferance.

    I bought a DigiSender unit (is probably the most expensive at the moment) but it is great for what it does. I fitted a One4Al sender to someones house the other day and it was ok, but needed a lot of moving about to get the sound to stop crackling.

    It also depends on the distance you are wanting the unit to send the information across to.

    A mate of mine bought a X-Sender from Bid-Up-TV the other day and he wants me to set it up for him tomorrow. He paid £25 for it.

    Will let you know how I get on tomorrow if you like.

    They do a job, but just dont expect miracles with the cheaper units.

    You can set the channels on the senders and on the wireless router...

    So yeah, if they are far enough apart on the spectrum, it shouldn't cause a problem.

    If you are happy to run a cable from your Sky box to 2nd TV, you could use a magic eye, it connects to the RF2 connection on your Sky Box and then to the aerial socket on your 2nd TV.

    Cost under a fiver + the cost of aerial cable.

    You can then change Sky channel at the 2nd TV location.

    Its a good thought, but looking to do it wireless

    I recently got a wireless setup and the picture was awful, it wasnt cheap either at £89.99.

    Get the tecknica one from Tesco, currently £22 I think. I've got 2 sets and the picture quality is perfect. You can use your remote through it too so you can change channels on the second tv.

    This was one from Maplins does exactly what you want but bit pricey.

    Does what you want and it's only £27 plus 5% quidco! Think they're £22 in store so maybe worth a quick check there first?
