    Hi,

    Not sure this is possible but I thought this would be the place to find out!

    I have Sky+ HD and would actually like to relocate the TV to an alternative position. I don't really want to re-cable or extend the cabling.

    Have I any alternatives such as a piece of wireless kit that might do the job? The Sky+ HD box can move - or stay where it is - that doesn't bother me.

    All suggestions welcomed!

    thx

    Gus

    There are no wireless HD senders/receivers at the moment - or none with a sensible price attached to them. But there are wireless scart senders/receivers at reasonable prices if you aren't bothered about the HD capabilities. Alternatively, just use a longer HDMI cable if the box and TV are still living in the same room.

    Welcome to AVF.
    It IS a good place in general to find out, but the particular place where you started your first thread was NOT a good one - immediately under this fixed thread by a supermoderator: No Sky Threads Here.
    As Broadz says you can send the output from the receiver's Scart socket to the TV through a pair of wireless videosenders, but they're meant more for sending to another room.
    Longer HDMI cables for receiver to TV are cheap enough, and alternatively it's a simple job to extend the cable from dish to receiver.
