Blackbird Pro WIHD 60GHz Uncompressed Wireless Professional HDMI Extender, 30 meter range
The Blackbird Pro WIHD 60GHz Uncompressed Wireless Professional HDMI Extender 16049 gets Wirecutter's Top Budget Pick in its "Best Wireless HDMI Video Transmitter" roundup. Read the article here.
The Monoprice Blackbird™ WiHD™ HDMI® Extender uses a 60GHz carrier frequency and can wirelessly transmit HDMI video to distances up to 98 feet (30 meters). It supports HDMI resolutions up to 1920x1080p@60Hz, video resolutions up to 1920x1200@60Hz, and up to 7.1 channels of High Bit Rate (HBR) lossless audio streams, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™. It is compliant with the WiHD™ 1.1 and HDCP 2.0 standards.
Wireless: Forget about long HDMI®, network, or coaxial cables. As long as you have access to power, you can wirelessly extend full HD HDMI video without the need for long, expensive runs of copper.
Up to 98ft: Wirelessly extend full HD HDMI video to distances up to 98 feet (30 meters).
USB-Powered: Rather than using a proprietary AC power adapter, which can get lost in a move and which requires an open AC power socket, it uses a basic USB connection for its power. This allows you to use a standard USB wall charger, a USB charger integrated into a power strip, or an open USB port on your smart TV or Blu-ray Disc™ player.

Questions and Answers
Additionally, if your cable box has a power saver feature (mine does, it is a Comcast Xfinity non-DVR HDMI satellite box), I recommend you turn this feature off. This wireless system does have an automatic "sleep" feature. However, I found that when the cable box went into power saver mode, this system sometimes lost "sync" with the cable box and required resetting the wireless system.
Sometimes there is still a small delay when the TV is first turned on as the video "syncs" with the TV, however this is most likely a function of the TV and not the cable box signal or the wireless system. Video and audio quality appears as advertised going to my HDTV. However, I am only using the TV speakers for sound so I can't confirm digital sound quality. Also, no apparent interference with the wi-fi in my house, which is as expected based on the frequency band used by this system.
PROS: Easy setup, Small
CONS: A bit expensive, but still cheapest option for what it does
Planning to send back and look for a better product elsewhere. First time ever returning a Monoprice item. This just isn't up to their usual standards.
