I was searching on the Internet looking for wireless video signal transmitter-receiver to send the Dish TV signal to a second TV in another room so that I don’t have to run any wires. I found many brands and stores that offer these equipment. The questions that I have:
- How good will the picture be on the second TV? as good the one connected directly to the dish receiver?
- Will I need a second dish satellite receiver at the second TV location?
- Any one has experience in this setup to offer advice and recommendations on which brands and models of wireless video transmitter-receiver to buy?
- Any thing else I should know?
I use a wireless video sender to get TV in my kitchen from my bedroom (about 25 feet) and here is some info:
1. The picture is for the most part the just as good as the one directly connected with the exception of a small amount of interference now and again from my wireless router (not enough to worry about).
2. No need for another dish receiver at the second TV location, just an input source on the back of the second TV.
3. I have used the Terk Leapfrog and the WavecomPro 3260 and have had better luck with the WavecomPro, it has a stronger signal. I paid around $80 for each system so keep in mind you get what you pay for. I seem to remember the WavecomPro company sells systems that cost much more and might then perform much better. Try to install the sender and receiver boxes up high and with as few walls as possible to increase the quality of the transmission.
4. I believe Best Buy sells the Terk Leapfrog system but you can get it cheaper online (as with anything else). I think either system will work well if you don't try to go too far of a distance (check specs on systems for distance supported).
