Hi,

long time looker, first time post so hope im in right area. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with the Dse 5.8ghz av receivers and if they work well with sky decoder. Currently have multiroom and looking to have extra option in spare room...so looking at using av receivers about 10 metres apart and through 1 wall. I'd never actually seen this product until a couple of days ago so not sure how new and untried they are.

We've used similar ones for some time at church to send a video feed to the mother's room. It goes lots more than 10m (maybe 25 to 30m) and through a wall with a steel beam. Works okay, but have to play with the antenna orientation to get it acceptable and when someone walks between the units the signal gets a bit of snow. We might be pushing it a bit far, especially with the steel beam in the way. There are people that modify the 2.4GHz version with high gain directional antennas (illegal) and get over 10km, one guy got around 40km. Very popular as a cheap amateur TV transmitter.

The picture quality is about the same as when you watch analogue TV.

Hi, thanks Niel....i know the easiest option would be just to get another decoder but the amount of time it would be used would not justify it. Im thinking this might be the way to go, pic quality not a major ..just the option of channels.

Sorry, should have added we use 5.8GHz Digitor versions to avoid isues with our 2.4GHz WiFi and cordless phones.

Bought some Digitech 5.8ghz receivers from Jaycar and they work great...plugged into mysky hdi upstairs and i plugged the receiver into my downstairs bedroom tv and with little adjustment a decent picture and the mysky remote works fine so i do recomend to anyone who just wants the option of watching sky in bedroom without the cost of multiroom.
