AV Sender

Hi All,

Hope I've come to the right place for this!

I've got an Nvidia personal cinema graphics card http://***********/8s3tq and want to be able to view, select and record Sky+ channels through it on my PC.

I'm guessing that rather than run cables from TV to PC I should use an AV sender similar to these http://***********/8norv. However, none of these seem to support S-video for picture.

Does anyone know where I can get a sender that does, or is there a better solution for what I am trying to do?

Many thanks!

Your best choice would in fact be to run an s-video cable between the two. I have one that is 10m long and still gives a good picture.

There is no such thing as an s-video sender. You can only buy ones that support composite.

I dislike these things immensely, any movement around the room and the picture will most likely break up, And whatever you do, don't switch on a microwave whilst watching!

thanks dave. A similar thought came to me whilst i was just making a cuppa! I think i'll do that - can i get an 'infra red' sender, so that I can control the sky menu with the remote that came with the graphics card?

Sorry mate, I don't know enough about the Nvidia personal cinema graphics card to answer that.

I doubt it is compatible with sky. I use one of those things that connect to the RF2 output, works a treat.

I have tried AV senders (rubbish), long s-video and audio leads (slightly less rubbish) but by far the best solution is looking at a separate device which you can connect to your exisiting pc by ethernet and stream audio/video across to your tv. Should also get an RGB scart connection that way, if that is the best connection available on your tv.

thanks lisag. which device would you suggest?

If it affects things, I am trying to get my tv picture onto my pc monitor, not the other way around
