    In my experience they can be more trouble then there worth.

    Always best wired then wireless.

    I've got the Giga 2020 system and I was pleasantly surprised.

    It's easily set up and provides good video and sound. I bought one for my 4 yr old so that he could go to bed and watch cartoons without disturbing the missus who is sometimes in the bedroom watching soaps with the baby.

    I let him watch cartoons, whilst I watch a dvd. I was so impressed I bought a 2nd unit for downstairs for the missus sister who is staying with us temporarily :(

    I also have a 2nd sky+ remote so that she can control the sky from downstairs after I've gone to bed.

    I have a 3 storey house and the sender is in the middle with the 2 receivers top and bottom. I also have a wireless g network and haven't experienced any problems.

    I use the Gigavideo 30 system with no real problems.
    I have a receiver in the kitchen & bedroom and both work very well most of the time. The only time there are any problems is when the microwave is in use. This wipes out the picture and sound whilst in use, but once tyhe MW has finished the picture and sound return with no problems.

    Don't expect the PQ to be too good as it is only sending/receiveing a composite signal, but for glancing at while doing the washing up :rolleyes: they are good enough.
