How well does this device really work?
99 views and no replies! Am I asking a daft question? Nothing came up on this on 'search' and as I have just gained a few more rooms to the house it sounds like a great alternative to trailing extra wiring- if it works OK.
I would really appreciate feedback from those of you with experience or knowledge of these sort of devices.
I have no idea what it is
I seem to recall the term being used for cable boxes when used in conjunction with TIVO to make sure that TIVO could control the channel switching etc but that's about it.
Can you point us to a website or give a more detailed explanation of what it is?
Here are some more. They vary a lot in price, so I guess in quality too.
I wondered too
They don't work too badly, as long as you and no-one else within about 100 metres has got a wireless network in their house.
Nick, the one on the Maplin site says 'DigiSender X4 has 16 infra red relay radio channels ensuring interference from a neighbours remote control is eliminated'. Could that also mean no interference from another wireless network?
No it doesn't mean that. It just means that if your neighbour is using a similar device, your TV won't obey his remote.
Wireless computer networks use a much narrower bandwidth signal, which effectively means that they could cause picture interference to you, but you won't interfere with them.
