This is the first time I've ever written a review for something purchased online but felt this product deserved my input. The transmitter is at one end of my house downstairs while the receiver is on the other end of the house upstairs with many plaster walls and rooms in between. I'd say its at least fifty feet not counting the fact that they are on different levels of the house. I was not expecting it to work as advertised, honestly I thought I'd connect it, play with it, and end up sending it back. I couldn't have been more wrong. The picture is perfect and the sound perfect also. The picture will "crackle" a small bit if someone walks down the hallway blocking the signal but its not a big disturbance and to be expected. The ability to control the dvd downstairs with a remote upstairs is awsome. My only complaint about this product is that you have to manually turn it off via a small switch on the sides of both the receiver and transmitter. I'm just leaving them turned on, hope that it doesn't burn my house down. Oh, I did notice that when I use my bluetooth pda that it interferes with the broadcast, my 900mhz phone does not but I'm betting a 2.4Ghz phone would cause interference. One more thing, the manual doesn't tell you but the cordless phone-like antenae on the side is to send/receive the remote control signals. I found that I did have to have both of these standing straight up to work right. I would write more but suffice it to say this product works as advertised with awsome quality.

I am very happy with this product. It sends a great video signal. I used it with an HD satellite and TV and it sent a very good picture, not quite as good as a direct HD connection but very good considering the RCA connectors are the only option. It does take a few minutes to create a good signal but once the antennaes are pointed in the right direction it works great. My cordless phone causes interference when using it. Wireless network had no effect on it.

The perfect answer...

by Lori on 4/22/2008

I picked this product as an answer to needing an additional location in our home for sattelite reception. The cost of going thru the sattelite provider was too much as we only need it for a temporary period of time...When I found this, I decided it was worth a try. Like magic, it works great! Set up was very simple, all of the features work including being able to control the channels from both locations. I don't experience any interference...both the picture and sound at the secondary location are clear and consistant. Thanks for the perfect solution to a potentially costly problem! Read More
