Product overview

• Send digital TV upstairs or to another room in your home without cables • Change channel from another room with the built-in IR remote repeater (note: now compatible with Sky+ / Virgin remotes)• Compatible with practically any video source with a SCART or Phono connection (DVD, TV, satellite, Cable, PC, etc) • Super high-gain aerial and higher frequency for improved picture quality • No interference from wireless CCTV or networks due to 5.8GHz frequency band • Directional antenna to pinpoint the best possible picture with separate UHF IR antenna to reduce signal loss• Typical range up to 10m indoors• 4 channels for minimum of interference • Phono sockets for compatibility with various types of AV equipment • Stable 5.8GHz signal operates through most walls, floors and ceilings • PAL and NTSC compatible • Very easy to set up

All video senders are the same, right? Wrong! This video sender operates on the 5.8 GHz frequency and others operate on 2.4 GHz. Many household appliances like Wi-Fi, Cordless Phone, Microwave, etc., are also on 2.4 GHz so they will interfere with the standard video sender but with this one, due to its higher frequency you will experience interference-free viewing. And the long range of of up to 10m indoors and super high-gain aerial means crisp video and high-quality stereo signals for maximum entertainment.This product comes with one transmitter and one receiver. If you need additional receivers, you can purchase it using order code A87KH.

This product will not work with HDMI outputs. It requires either a SCART or Phono outputs to be available.

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 Well pleased ! Got these today. Took 10 minutes to set up, which was mostly spent rearranging the furniture to accommodate the tv and pulling out the sky+ box etc. Great picture on tv in bedroom, worked instantly, SCART leads are labelled receiver and transmitter to avoid confusion. The transmitter and receiver are approx 12 feet apart through a suspended timber floor topped by laminate flooring. Put the IR mouse on the shelf in front of sky box and the sky remote works upstairs. You can access the planner, recorded shows etc upstairs as if you were sat in your lounge. FFWD and RWND work on live tv too. HD channels are at about 90% I would say but I will take that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing bit of kit and probably one of the best purchases I've ever made. I've owned mine for over two years and I've used it every day with a Humax Freeview PVR. It's been turned on all the time and has worked fine - no over heating. Quite how the remote control function works is beyond me - amazing. Picture Interference is close to zero. Criticism? Reds are too red. But frankly the fact that I can cite such a criticism in respect of an AV sender speaks volumes about the high standard this device sets. One of the most under rated gadgets I've ever encountered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with Freesat Just bought this today from the Newcastle upon Tyne branch and set it up, at home, using Humax Freesat box as the sending unit. The TV was in the next room, approx. 5mtrs away although at the other side of an intertnal, solid brick wall. The reception on the TV was perfectly acceptable, although not of HD or near quality, but watching snooker gave a good enough picture of adequate quality. So far, no interference from WiFi hub, wireless telephones, mobile, wireless headphones etc. Overall, this product performs as described and is a lot cheaper than getting a new external TV aerial and also gives the flexibility of positioning the receiving TV ( as long as you can get a couple of mains plugs near that location).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from watchable picture and sound I was assured in store that this would do all i needed it to. it was on sale with 20 pound off, i wanted a decent picture and wanted to be able to change channels from a sky hd box from the second tv in bedroom about 8 to 10 meteres apart. this however i could not do. i have read a few different forums and also looked at the questions for the item on here regarding my problem and none of the resolutions that where suggested helped. i tryed them all. the quality of picture was watchable i would say visual 7 out of 10, sound was perfect. alittle interference when moving around the room. but as i can not change channels i will be returning for a refund

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This item is superb once I figured out, with the help of Maplin's tech staff, that using the VCR scart connection on the back of the Virgin Media box, as the TV scart is disabled if you use the HDMI lead, works absolutely fine. I also found that you need to put the sensor next to the remote light on the VM box so you can control the box from the receiver location. Excellent product though come's highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product, works with TIVO This product works with the Virgin media Samsung tivo box. The scart cables that come with this appear to be made of flimsy metal and a real struggle to insert into the TV and tivo. Be very careful. My second TV is in my bedroom, signal travels about 6 metres, through the ceiling and interior wall. The signal is nice and crisp, but walking near the receiver does cause interference, but to be honest I'm okay with that. This product would be five stars, if the scart connectors were better made

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make sure! Heads up everyone.... Great bit of kit but the instructions don't tell you that the scart leads are specific to the sender and receiver. Get them the wrong way round and it won't work! Well worth the money though excellent picture upstairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like all these systems that claim hundreds of feet range... it's not in real life. I've had mine for about a year now, the sender unit is downstairs, the reciever unit upstairs directly above the sender, the antennae are aligned and the physical distance between them is about 12ft. Reception is unreliable, sometimes non-existent. The fact is, if you live in a modern house with thinner walls it's probably ok. But if you live in an older house with thicker brick walls, forget it

Operating Specifications



I want to broadcast video from tv or sky box in my front room to a second tv upstairs. I currently use a magic eye AV sender via a cable. Will this product send the sky tv from my box or tv to view on a second tv?

Asked by: grant
That would depend on what connection your sky box has.

Will this work with a Freesat HDR box and how many watts do the sender & receiver use?

Asked by: Jace59
if the freesat box connects via phono cables to your TV then this would work. But as this is a discontinued item we have no further in-depth technical specifications.

I cannot get the channels to change in the room where the receiver is

Asked by: Jonathan
This is typically caused by the IR repeater not being placed in front of the sky box , i.e plug the repeater in and face it towards the sky box, This should solve the issue.

Should the video senders be turned off when not in use, or should they be left on?

Asked by: Johnny
We would recommend turning off between uses, however there would be no adverse effects to the units themselves if they were left on, e.g second TV being used in a bedroom and the units left on overnight.
