    Gonna have my GC inside my Loewe Mimo cabinet. The door is about 1/2 inch thick plastic. Is the Wavebird signal likely to penetrate this ok?
    The back of the cabinet is open, so if it doesn't work through the door the should it be ok bouncing off the wall and into the open back?

    Many thanks.

    It should work fine through solid objects as long as its not lead or something. I've even tested it while I was downstairs and the gamecube was upstairs and it worked fine, pity I couldn't see what was going on though. ;)

    Thanks. Thought it would be fine as it's a radio signal, but i heard that it only had about a 20ft reach in free space so thought i'd double check.
    Do you know if there is anywhere cheaper than £29.99 in p+p?

    Mine worked perfectly fine when I tested this:

    Through the floorboards of my room, through 3 seperate walls, a patio door and with me at the far end of a 20ft garden. Total distance: maybe 45ft, 3 brick walls and a double-glazed patio door.

    So I think a 1/2" plastic door will be ok :D

    You can get a Wavebird for less than £25 from DVDBoxOffice.com.
