Advantages Watch Satellite In A Second Room With No Wire
Disadvantages It's Still Only One Channel

THE BASICS OF THE UNIT
Basically if you have a unit, be it a DVD player, a sky box or a video, that has a scart or a composite signal output then this unit will allow to view the signal in another location (up to 30m from the unit in a house) without having to fit a wire. You can even go to the second room with your remote control and change the channel over from there so no more running up and down the stairs to get the program you want. Another good use that I can think of for this unit is if you had some AV equipment that you wanted to have hidden away in a cupboard but still be able to control it then you could put the units away and just have the receiver on show. Or if you had a CCTV system and didn’t want someone to know where it was being recorded you could come out of a switcher unit into this and send it remotely to a VCR where it was being recorded with no-one knowing about it. An advantage of using this system is that if you ever need to send the signal to another room you can either move the unit to that room or if both rooms need it then just buy a second receiver for around £30, with no limit on the amount of receivers. The only disadvantage however is that the unit will not send an RF (aerial) signal and that the TV in the second room must have a scart socket, otherwise you will need to get a modulator to convert the signal at around another £30.
EASE OF USE
The units are fairly easy to use. You plug one into you satellite box downstairs, put the little remote eye in front of the box plug it into the mains then just plug the other unit in to the second TV scart and job done.
I’ve not had mine very long but the units feel good and strong, they also look the part. A nice neat design. The only part that I can see getting broken is the connector for the remote eye, it is similar to a headphone socket and could get snagged on something but that’s the only fault I can find there.
Worth the money for sure, much less hassle and no wires all over the house.
