      Recommended Video Sender?

      as subject...

      Can anyone recommend a video sender system to enable my son to use sky+ from his own TV in the bedroom? The sky+ box is in our family room.

      We are on a single level but its an old flat with thick walls.
      We also have sky broadband throwing out a wireless signal so we need a sender that wont cause or be interfered by that signal.

      Hoping one of you folks have some good experiences.

      Cost-wise, as cheap as possible as he is paying for it himself.

      TIA

      Personally I would really avoid these.

      I have tried 3 versions over the years and every time I have gone back to good on hard wire.

      I always found the pic quality on them to be awful.

      Is hard wiring not possible as it really is a better option (and cheaper too!).

      I have to agree, these are rubbish and always fail. Cost wise it will be cheaper and better to run a cable out of the RF2 socket and fit a magic eye.

      Unless you buy a sender that works on the 5GHz band, you will get interference from wi-fi, because it's a shared band. Unfortunately there will soon be lots of wi-fi routers sharing that band too.

      On the bright side 5Ghz has many more usable channels, 23 I think but against that the effective distance of 5Ghz is much less than 2.4Ghz and is blocked more easily by thick walls.

      I have a cheepo (20 from Aldi) AV sender which I use for sending my security cameras' picture to my TV. It is transmitting through a 2 foot stone wall and works OK. I have only tried it once for actual TV, from one end of a room to another and it seemed to work OK. It was just to demonstrate a TV I was selling, not permanent, so I don't know how it would be for long term use.
