To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Have had them installed for about a month, have had 5 instances where the picture turned green, or picture and sound were glitching. I assume the supplied HDMI cables are poor quality because when I jiggle them the picture changes. I will be upgrading them and seeing how the system works then. If they were about $40 cheaper I think they would be priced right, they seem a bit overpriced, but definitely nice for streamlining my house, just wish the bugs were worked out
The device is easy to install and setup. Picture quality is great. However the device must be constantly powered down then powered back up to establish connection when changing channels or powering up the secondary tv on the receiver.
It was ok while it worked. Setup was not as easy and I had hoped and I had issues with the audio since I had surround speakers set up. Audio transmitted did not support the surround. After 18 months use, the transmitter emits a loud high pitch frequency and doesn’t work anymore.
These work to a degree, but require an equal amount of work from you to do so.
They arrive with all the cords you’ll need (HDMI, power, etc) to get them up and running. Set-up is a very quick and painless process. Plug in three things and you’re done! I have video and audio playing in about 10 minutes of receiving the package.
The range is impressive. I placed the main transmitting in our main level family room. From there I can easily get TV signal in an upstairs guest bedroom on the other side of the house. More impressively, I can get audio and picture to a shed a level down and in our back yard. That’s probably 100 feet of distance traveled and multiple walls inside and out.
Picture quality is great. No noticeable loss of quality.
I’ve gotten the IR Blaster to work maybe once? It changed a channel, but it was a good 5 minutes after clicking it on the remote. Use of the guide and menu functions would be impossible with this. Since then I have not even gotten that far using the remote. It does nothing.
The devices need to be powered off and back on regularly. Before and new use, I would recommend so this just to be safe. If you do not do this, you may get no signal, or only audio/only video.
The device connection takes a few minutes after restarting it. This is only a minor inconvenience.
Overall: If I was using this to replace a cable box in a room or add one to a guest room, I would probably just rent a cable box instead of buying this device. At $150, I can rent the box for around a year and a half that won’t depend on hogging channels on a box in another room and that people can actually change the channel. I’m using it to get cable for football games in a pub shed outside I cannot run cable to. For my use it may be the only option I have. Even with that said, I’m still on the fence of whether I’m going to keep it.
Bought the product so that I can watch DVR live shows and recording in both living room were the DVR is and bedroom as well, unit functions well, but it does some times seem to loose signal and you have to unplug the DVR and reboot it so Receiver unit can recognize it, this happens at least once a month, some times the infared repeater acts up and does not seem to work reliably
Works okay. Have another brand in use elsewhere that works better. Audio tends to lag at times which requires a reset. Not the biggest pain but not what I want to have to do. Luckily both devices are easily accessible.
