Post Home Wireless A/V

I have Dish DTH at home installed in my living room. There is an option from Dishtv for the 2nd, 3rd & 4th connections. But all these involve cables running into the other rooms as well from the dish and they involve an initial expense of Rs.4k plus a recurring expense of 100 p.m as subscription. I have been thinking of something along this line

Philips SLV5400 Video Sender

But the problem is where to source it from & it is damn expensive too. I would like to know if anyone has tried something like this &

1. How is the clarity of sound & picture ?
2. What are the advantages & disadvantages ?
3. how much does it cost ? (Not the exact same model in the link)
4.Where is it available ?


I have a budget of 6k, slightly expandable for a simple & effective solution.
Any suggestions ???

so this will take the signal from your set top box and send it to your other tvs eh....well if you want something cheaper you can go in for the kind of amplifiers they use at electronics stores where one tv connection is used on all the channels..the only problem with any of these solutions is with just one tv tuner you will have to watch the same channel on all your tvs which kind of defeats the purpose of taking the connection on another tv as well....

Tho you will be able to connect your 2nd TV through his wireless with your single set top box, you will not be able to change channels on your 2nd TV.
Which basically means that both TV's will be viewing the same channels, if you change the channel on the settop box both will change simultaneously. Pretty useless imo, just get another box installed.

I think there is a remote which operates through this gadget & controls the parent device.

There are cheaper brands available that do the same job. In England you can pick them up for the equivalent of 1800RS.

Many have a remote control dongle which can be used to control sat receiver in another room.
