TP-Link TL-WPA281 300Mbps AV200 Wireless N Powerli&hellip by TP-Link

This works like a dream ! Take it out of the box, plug it into a wall power socket & it worked instantly with my existing older powerline boxes. The Wireless connection is now happily feeding my laptop, Android tablet and Nintendo Wii. It broadcast's through a new SID by default rather than extending an existing WiFi signal. The Wired connection is feeding my Humax DVR.

HOWEVER BE CAREFUL - straight out of the box it broadcasts through an open (i.e. password free) SSID which anyone in range could connect to, potentially giving access to your home network. Log onto the device (by default 192.168.0.247) using a web browser and add a wireless password.

Full of topical (for the seventies) references, sarcasm and subtle… Read more

Good
* The Freeview digital tuner images are great (no analogue tuner at all - unlike the earlier EZ45 model I bought for my Mum).
* Electronic Program Guide (EPG) can be configured to remember programs for quick start-up (unlike my Humax).
* Video and DVD images are crisp.
* DVD records and plays every option imaginable (+R, -R, +RW, -RW, DL & RAM - RAM is most flexible).
* It's great for copying home video into DVD, either from VHS or direct from your camcorder via a DV socket.

Bad
* Most commercial video is Macrovision encoded and this device deliberately stops you copying them to DVD - even from an external source.
* Menu and Titling options… Read more
