5.8Ghz Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter

Add wireless flexibility to your home audio and video system with this 5.8GHz Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter from Monoprice!

This wireless transmitter allows you to wirelessly extend the signals from your VCR, satellite receiver, or camcorder using composite and S-Video cables. It operates on the 5.8GHz wireless frequency band, which is less crowded and has less interference than the traditional 2.4GHz wireless frequency.The unit allows you to select between four different RF channel frequencies for the transmission as well as two different IR remote frequencies.

The transmitter has an IR extender so you can control your source devices by simply pointing your remote at the transmitter. The package includes both the transmitter and receiver unit, 2 AC adapters, an IR transmitter bulb, and a set of RCA Composite cables. An S-video cable can be used instead of the yellow composite video cable when applicable.

The antennas of the transmitter and receiver can be rotated in order to point directly towards each other. The system's maximum range depends on the presence of obstructions. With clear line-of-sight it can achieve distances up to 200 feet! Inside homes, the effective range is normally reduced to approximately 75 feet.

A simple and effective way to transmit basic audio and video

Pros: Very easy to set up if you have basic AV experience.
Avoids pulling wires to a compromised location, at least in my case.

Cons: If you are addicted to HD-quality video, you are going to be disappointed.
I wish there was a version for RGB video, not just S-video.

I have a Bell 9242 two-tuner satellite receiver and DVR and I wanted to use the second tuner in another bedroom about 20 feet away. Normally I would have pulled coax through a crawl space between the rooms, but the TV location in the second bedroom would have forced me to snake coax around doorjambs, etc. Given that I was going to use this on a 19" LCD TV, I chose this product instead. Setup was quick and easy and it worked on the first try, and the aiming is rather forgiving at short distances. Yes, there is some ghosting and artifacts, but I am prepared to live with it. This is the cheapest, simplest solution so get this done. Note that I am using the composite video connection, since the Bell 9242 does not have S-video out for the second tuner.

Worked as specified

Pros: Easy Setup.
Works on TV RGB.
Also works for my Sub woofer
Reasonable price

Cons: None

I ordered the package with free shipping and was expecting a long lead time. but. Received it in 2 days. I only needed my Sub woofer to work (LFE) port. So I plugged my soundbar LFE output into the monoprice transmitter R (port) and plugged in the subwoofer LFE input into the monoprice Reciever report and all worked perfectly.
For kicks I did test a TV with the RGB connection to my DVR and it also worked as advertised. Great product

Didn't work

Pros: Never got it to work, so no "pros" here.

Cons: Never got it to work.

I bought this two weeks before my knee surgery, thinking I could watch cable tv in the bedroom while recovering and not have to walk into the family room. Never got it to work. Put it away and forgot about it past the return date.
