I have bought two of these units, the first time believing I may have broken it accidentally. Now i'm confident they are all faulty, as they work perfectly fine for a couple of weeks and then completely stop displaying any image. Contacted Nyrius support and followed all instructions to no avail and conclusion is "our warranty is only valid within the continental USA and Canada" - Waste of money. Should stop selling in UK if they are not willing to provide the basic warranty, will be contacting consumer watchdog.
I was keen to use this since my TV currently uses HDMI cables channeled into the wall and I think they're faulty and didn't want to have to go through the hassle of digging them out of the wall and running new ones.
However, this product did not work for me. Firstly it took about 90 seconds to pair whenever I turned my AV receiver & TV on, which was annoying but not a deal breaker. The deal breaker was that it would regularly fail to pair so I'd have to go through the hassle of re-pairing repeatedly. I've sent it back to Amazon and hoping to get my money back.
On the bright side, when it did pair, it worked fine, just not reliable enough.
I have persevered with the product for about 6 weeks after my Nyrius Aries Home stopped working after many years of faithful service. I opted for the prime version this time around with a view of making my setup more streamlined but it truth it has been nothing but hassle. The connectivity is extremely temperamental, I can wait 20-30 minutes sometimes for a connection to establish and even once you finally get the two devices communicating you’ll notice that the quality of the image quality is not a patch on the Home version. All in all and very disappointing, expensive purchase and certainly something I would recommend you avoid - go with the older Home version as it is a far superior product.
It worked spot on out of the box connecting a laptop wirelessly to a projector, using the USB port on the projector to power the receiver. Video and Audi was great from about 4m. As soon as I picked up the laptop to move it away I lost signal and couldn’t get it back. Checked the receiver and there was no power. Coincidence that it powered off at the exact time that I moved the laptop? Maybe. But I can’t get the power back on. Haven’t tried plugging it into the mains as there isn’t a plug nearby. So, great while it worked/lasted. Expensive for an unreliable product though. Suggest you don’t buy.
Awesome. I have a projector which I use with my PS4 for watch movies. Having to unplug and move the PS4 every time I want to watch something was a drag, then I came across this product and problem solved. It works beautifully and I'm very pleased.
Setup using a Denon receiver with about 7 ft distance projection. It worked on and off for 2 years but it was flakey, many times I would have to reset / re pair them during a movie and it could take ages to work again. The HDMI receiver seemed to get quite warm, not sure if that was the issue, reliability got worse as time wore on, in the end I got fed up, and put back the cable ! I really wanted this to work but it was problematic.
Although it's seems a lot of money, it is worth it. Plugged into the back of my PC and the receiver into the back of the tv. A couple of seconds and it was up and running. The receiver was quite light, so just tucked easily behind my wallmounted tv. It was not in line of sight, but worked fine, good picture and sound quality. No issues with any signal loss so far. I looked at lots of reviews before making the purchase, I think I made the best choice, no unnecessary cables.
Excellent product, no signal loss/artefacts on 4K tv (in 1080p) and 4K video projector as well. Sturdy MINI usb cable and plug (to avoid breaking the device it's a great point) build quality is amazing. One point however, the HDMI cable from the receiver could be very hot after several minutes. you have to be sure that nothing covers it during use.
This product worked for the first two weeks and since then it has gradually deteriorated to the point where I can no longer watch television, I have tried tuning the transmitter to the receiver as per the instructions and at first that worked for a few days but now they cannot even connect to oneanother. Do not purchase.
