    tvLinkHD Wired System - F807508 - Global Invacom

    I found this system today. Just wondered what others thought about it or had had any experience of it? Based on the number of threads about extending HD around homes and using older cabling infrastructure.

    I gather you can have up to 3 receivers from 1 transmitter and it will work at full 1080p with Dolby Digital 5.1. It also carries remote control signals back to the STB as well.

    Sounds good as an upgrade for those wanting to send HD around their homes to secondary TVs, without the expense of re-cabling.

    Sounds a bit too good to be true at £230.00, though the spec does state just Stereo PCM, and that the multiple receivers is not available yet unless just old manual on the link.

    Yes, I think there has been a firmware upgrade, as the CPC.co.uk website suggests multiple receivers and DD5.1

    Being sold on the 'Bay as well, but I couldn't find a decent review.

    Interesting, must modulate the signal it and the unmodulate. We do have a modulator that converts HDMi signals to HD signals that can be picked up by digital tuners up to 1080p but no where near that price but ours doesn't need receivers so useful if lots of TVs on an aerial backbone.
