My elderly Father has Sky Q and wanted it in an extra room, but a Sky Q Mini Box requires a broadband connection which he does not have nor need.
Sky Q boxes no longer have the old RF Out that Sky+ boxes had, and IR over HMDI is quite possible but a bit untidy and it's hard to install an HDMI cable to link two devices due the bulk of HMDI connectors.
These two little boxes appear to work faultlessly, transmitting an HD HDMI signal to a 2nd telly. Obviously you can only watch one programme at a time but for his uses it's perfect. There is no obvious degradation from the HDMI pass through on the transmitting unit.
Not cheap, but a breeze to set up and highly recommend so far.
Overall a great product. I bought it (last week) based on the reviews here and am very happy with it so far. As has been previously mentioned it's a breeze to set up - except when the source is an AV receiver. Once I figured out to take the HDMI Out from the Receiver into the TV Anywhere and then plug an additional cable from the TV Anywhere to the main TV I thought I had it cracked. Everything at the source worked fine. Come to the second TV in the kitchen, all the lights on the TVA box were lit correctly, turn on the TV and a beautiful HD picture from my Sky box in the living room but no sound. Troubleshooting per the manual led me to select 2ch stereo on the AV receiver but still no sound. After 1 1/2 hours going through every menu on every box, I finally found a sound setting on the AV Receiver that indicated an HDMI TV port was disabled. Once I enabled it, boom, the audio was banging in to the kitchen TV.
Haven't yet connected up the IR remote control which I suspect might be a bit tricky on a sky box but will have a go this coming weekend.
Albeit a bit awkward to set this gizmo up on my kit, the results are stunning compared with my old video sender equipment, several years old now and I really cant fault the TV Anywhere video and audio quality in any way.
I previously purchased Marmitek,s HDTV Anywhere which uses the mains to transmit an existing HDTV signal to another room. I was very disappointed that this did not work because of a clash with a WIFI extender that also uses the mains. So, I thought I would try this wireless version. It was very easy to set up and it works brilliantly! The HDTV signal is successfully transmitted from one room, through two internal walls to another room on the same floor. One of the internal walls is a brick wall and the other is a plasterboard stud wall.
I bought this to replace another different extender which recently failed. It’s easy to use Signal seems strong when working ok but I am now getting sporadic shutdown of the transmitting box. Which means the main tv screen and the remote go blank for upwards of 30 and often a lot more seconds whilst it reboots itself. I haven’t thrown away the packing as this may mean this unit is not fit for purpose and will have to be returned which is disappointing when you bear in mind the high cost of this product.
Only found out recently that this sort of product was available. It’s just what I needed as I have a Virgin TiVo box in my front room, but my main tv is in the back room. This was very easy to set up. Less than 10 minutes. I am very pleased with the product. I’ve only given four stars because there is a slight loss of quality on the HD channels.
