About this product


Product overview

• Send digital TV upstairs or to another room without cables
• 5.8GHz frequency band - limited interference from wireless networks or wireless CCTV
• Typically transmits up to 10m indoors
• Compatible with practically any video source (DVD, TV, satellite, Cable, PC, etc)
• Stable 5.8GHz signal operates through most walls, floors and ceilings
• For use with Freeview, free-to-air, Sky TV boxes and more
• Change channel from another room with the built-in IR remote repeater
• PAL and NTSC compatible
• Easy set up
• Kit includes 1x transmitter and 1x receiver

Please note: The transmission distance is dependent on the construction of the building you are using it in. In modern 3 bedroom houses with partition (dry) walls typically you will be able to transmit anywhere in the house. However buildings with all brick construction will sometimes see a reduction in the range possible and with stone built houses transmission may only be possible to adjacent rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I am so pleased with my purchase. I placed my order at 15:30 today whilst at work and used your shuttle delivery service. When I got home at 18:00 you had already delivered the video sender. It took me approximately 20 minutes to set up out of the box and after a little fiddling with the positioning we have fabulous TV from our V box in the living room to the TV in the kitchen. So pleased I found this product before drilling holes in the wall to run slightly cables through the living room and kitchen to our TV sound and picture quality are great! Thank you Maplin fantastic product and the best delivery experience I have ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Since getting my av sender i have run a few simple tests before giving it a proper home and have found it to perform very well, the audio has no hum and although the picture shows very slight static during blue screen mode it gives a very good picture when displaying a channel, i have also found it works very well with the Samsung Sky HD BOX ( Model 1.4.300 ) Version 973006 and the Sky HD Remote also works with its infra red remote extender, so this is a must for anyone wanting cheap sky multi room without wires, i cannot at present confirm if it will work on my older sky plus box but i will update further if it does.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from absolutely terrible, rarely works, doors have to be left open and in the right position, moving the aerial is annoying, its slow to respond if you leave your hand on it, itll interfere so setting it up takes ages, even standing near it messes with it, when someone walks up the stairs itll knock it off till there gone. my house isnt big, the best ive ever gotten the signal is still fuzzing and with really loud static, waste of money and the remote feature needs several button pushes and it still might not work, the three infa-red remote senders all have to be right infront of the sky box or whatever box you have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! having had an older version of these years ago i knew the principle of how they worked and was just what i wanted to be able to enjoy my sky tv in my bedroom. Was able to install myself with help of friend (another female) and they worked first time, no interferance at all (somthing the older style ones had a lot of) would definately recommend. I also used the click and collect option and was still able to use an online discount code and was greeted by friendly staff at the Dundee branch. Fantastic product, price and easy transaction. Thank you MAPLIN

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor Purchased yesterday got home and set up correctly according to the manual which may I add is also very confusing and at a cost of £60 I was expecting a lot more the picture quality is terrible we live in a 2 bed bungalow the signal is being passed through one interior stud wall at a distance of about 4m and struggles to get a picture atal let alone one that's watchable. I moved the TV's and senders close to one another to make sure the product wasn't faulty and at a distance of about 1m it's perfect but anything over it doesn't work! If your trying to get sky picture in another room just run a coax cable and don't waste your money on this garbage!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic little product, works perfectly with my Sky +HD box. Followed Andrew's advice previously posted and after a bit of running between upstairs and downstairs have it working great. In order for the Sky remote to change channel on the receiving TV, put the IR dot over the Sky IR light and make sure the transmitter signal can beam to it on the sky box - I can confirm it works!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was useless. It would send the signal to the receiving unit in the same room, and it managed through one wall. But if you want to go through more than one wall it doesn't work. The only redeeming factor is that it was no worse than another device I tried. So whilst it is on offer, and if you have a simple requirement it will do the job. moderator note:There will be occasions where the use of wireless AV senders in some locations is not appropriate or functional. As indicated in this review this customer has used many devices with the same results, this sadly sounds to be one of those cases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought this today, spent a bit of time setting it up on my bedroom tv to make use of the Sky HD box in the living room. Takes a bit of trial and error with the different channels and positioning it. The Infrared extension works perfectly with one of the eyes stuck flat on the surface below the eye i.e. pointing up perpendicularly. The picture is by no means HD as one shouldn't expect, it's probably on par with an SD Freeview tuner, the sky menu is a bit grainy and the signal is interrupted when I walk between the sender and receiver.

Will the Nikkai 5.8GHz mini video sender transmit to a receiver which is BELOW where the transmitter is located? Will the AEI video sender do the same?

Hello  Do you connect to the tv with the scart lead or sky box as my sky box only has one scart connection which is already used. Thankyou

Asked by: Drew
You would need to connect this to output of the source item, so if you are trying to transmit the Sky signal, then you would need to connect to the Sky box at the transmitter side, with the receiver plugged into the input on the destination TV.

Hello, Does the sender plug in to the SCART connector on my existing freesat box ? And correspondingly the receiver plug into the SCART connector on the back of my TV ? If I want to change channels do I point my Freesat remote at the receiver ? Thanks.

Asked by: ryannne
Yes this will work fine Change channel from another room with the built-in IR remote repeater

Asked by: Ray_B
These connect via SCART, not HDMI. so, unfortunately, the Virgin Media Tivo box will not work.
