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.
Great product! At first I thought it was a bit pricey but after doing the math of everything I needed to wire the house the price became very comparable. The major savings is in time and construction materials. To top it off you can easily move this unit to another tv or even take it out of the house for special events.
Packaging is great, easy to setup and works great with the IR repeater! You have everything you need in the kit. I did replace the included hdmi cables with higher grade ones but that is totally optional.
I bought this product because I wanted to set up a television in my kitchen but there is no cable outlet nearby to plug in a TV cable box. I now can watch television in my kitchen without all the cable wires lying on the floor across the room. It took a while to set it up and get everything working but for the most part, I'm happy with the system. You need to be patient because it is a little finicky, you need to find the "sweet spot" for the wireless transmission to work and then make sure not to knock or move anything or you'll need to fiddle with it again. But for the most part, I'm happy with the system and once I got used to the delay when pressing the buttons on the remote I didn't get frustrated anymore. It's still cheaper than the expensive monthly fee for wireless TV service from my cable company (I can use the free basic TV cable box they provide). Note: there is a delay in the TV reception using the Actiontec box so if you can hear a TV connected on the same channel from another room, the reception from the Actiontec TV will not be synchronized.
I have connected the TX and RX about 20 feet away and have a clear line of site. The product works very well. Video is crisp and the audio is clear. The issue I do have is the sync between the video and audio. Sometimes, there is about a half second delay on my system before the voice catches up to the video. I don't know if that is normal as I was unable to find documentation on this on the Actiontec website. Also, when I tried to register the product, the model number was unavailable from the drop down menu. However, overall, I am satisfied with the product.
Love this product, worth every penny it solved our cable problem as we live in a new construction one would think everything would run the way it's supposed to, but alas the cable line in the living room is dead and the project manager doesn't seem to care about that. This product has gave us our living room and our bedroom back, I have and will continue to recommend this to anyone. Installation was quick and easy as long as you read the instructions lol. The one downside we have experienced is the sensor for the living room TV has died, the tv it's self works fine with the remote, but an easy fix just pick up a repeater (mind you I still have to get it) I'll update when I get one and give it a shot. Update: so we've been playing with the placement of the IR repeater and it has so far fixed our problem fingers crossed lol
I need this thing to hook up a TV in a remote location of my house; but I do not want to do the wiring, since the wall is insulated, too much work to do; and this thing is simple as plug and play; great stuff
I used this to stream my zone 2 to my bedroom, when it was a fresh restart it would work but when I used it again later there would be no sound and I would have to restart, sometime numerous times. Too much time and trouble for my liking.
Would not display colors properly with my HD TV hooked up with my Bell Expressvu satellite receiver. Ghosting and extreme yellows. No trouble with signal strength, but the source was only 10' from the TV.
