Wireless Senders

Hi All,

 I'm looking to transmit my Sky signal from my living room TV upstairs to my bedroom, which is directly above. Does anyone know any good wireless senders to do this with? Ideally I was only looking to spend about £40, but if a bit extra gets a better signal, then I'd be prepared to stretch the budget.

Thanks!

Re: Wireless Senders

I've tried a couple (albeit two or three years ago) and was rather underwhelmed by their performance - I also found that putting on other things such as wireless networks and cordless phones had a negative impact on the signal - it looked like I was using a set-top aerial!!!

Can you not run an RF cable upstairs from the Sky box (it has 2 RF outputs for this purpose)? If you do this, you can then get a MagicEye, which will transmit the remote control info across the RF cable as well, enabling you to change channels from upstairs.

I did this by running the cable through the outside wall, and then back in to the room above (obviously this depends on the layout of your house), as the missus didn't want the cable running up the wall...

did you go for a wireless TV sender in the end, and if so, how was it performed?


did it do what it said on the box, and can you recommend a system?
