    How many receivers can be connected to the transmitter?
    A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I just received my second transmitter/receiver pair, and tried to use two receivers with a single transmitter. With my limited testing, only a single receiver can be used per transmitter. Pressing the button on the receiver to try to get it to join the existing link does nothing, and pressing the button on the transmitter will switch the signal from the first receiver to the second receiver (first receiver goes black). If you want the same signal transmitted to multiple TVs, you would need either a single transmitter/receiver pair with an HDMI splitter/distribution amplifier at the receiving end, or a splitter/amplifier at the transmitting end to feed multiple transmitters/receiver pairs.
    Would like to use this to send hdmi from a satellite box to a tv in another room. There is a wall between the two units but distance is only 4-5 ft. Would this work in that scenario?

    Does this device pass any kind of EDID to the Source Input? I've tried connecting this to a computer and the computer doesn't detect anything as being connected at all?
    Jason B on Nov 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I was making the same type of connection and when I finally got both units to find each other the TV the receiver was connected to was the device successfully detected by the computer
    If you are using 2 transmitter/receiver pairs in the same room, how far apart do the transmitters need be so they don't interfere with each other. How far apart should the receivers be for the same issue?
    A shopper on Mar 6, 2018
    Does this product come with USB power adapters?
    A shopper on Dec 14, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. Both transmitter and receiver come with a USB cable and power adapter.
    Does this also transmit the IR signal?
    A shopper on Aug 24, 2018
    Does the base come off? I'm looking at this as an option for a camera rig so I can have a screen for the producer to watch. I'd be attaching it to a camera or a steadicam.
    A shopper on Feb 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I assume you're referring to the "cradles" at the bottom of the pictures. Those come separate in the package and are optional.
    Would this work to transmit cable content to a TV outside, so that we do not have to run a cable box and coax to it?
    Bob T on Nov 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: My application is indoor. It seels to also work bet when line of sight from transmitter to receiver is achieved. You will just have to try for your situation. Mono has a reasonable return policy f it does not work out. I am pleased with the performance. No delay or signal loss in my application.
    Has anyone had problems with this connecting to a Samsung TV? It works fine on other devices, but is not recognized on our new Samsung TV.
    New User U on Jul 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: 2018-08-20

    Your issue with the Blackbird Pro WIHD and your new Samsung TV is likely related to outdated firmware on the Blackbird Pro. I had the same problem with a new Samsung TV, learned elsewhere it was due to Blackbird Pro old firmware, and was informed by Monoprice in early April 2018 the Blackbird Pro firmware cannot be updated.

    The outdated firmware issue is probably related to Extended Display Identification Data (EDID). EDID is a data structure provided by a digital display to describe its capabilities to a video source (eg. graphics card or set-top box). It is what enables a modern personal computer to know what kinds of monitors are connected to it.

    The Blackbird Pro WIHD 60GHz Uncompressed Wireless Professional works well on older televisions but not with newer 4K UHD TVs which contain up-to-date EDID. I shopped around and found another 60 GHz wireless HDMI system which did have current EDID and for which the firmware can be updated by the user if necessary.

    Don't buy the Blackbird Pro if you have or plan to purchase a new 4K UHD television.
    What is the transmission latency? This will be coming from an AVR and I can only adjust 200ms for lip sync.
    Dean S on Apr 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I would estimate a few frames latency. 200ms should be more than enough.
    I have a cable box and TV in one room and I want to send the cable signal to another TV in another room. Bottom line - can I do this and watch different channels on the TV's at the same time? Thanks.
    Joseph Z on Dec 8, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: If you want to watch 2 different channels you need two cable boxes. This just takes the output from the box and send sit to another device wirelessly.

    Great Product When Wires Aren't A Viable Option
    I used this system in a room where the cable TV outlet was on the opposite wall where I wanted to place the TV. Transmission distance was approximately 10 feet with essentially a clear line of sight. If using this with a cable box, my only recommendation would be to setup your cable box by directly connecting it to a TV first, then connect the cable box to the wireless system after the cable box setup is complete. During my initial setup, there some periods when the screen was blank so I could not tell if there were an issue with the transmitter or receiver. Turns out the blank screens were just part of the setup process for the cable box.

    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

    Tolerable for a few days, now just doesn't work
    The desk in my office is about 15 feet from the TV on the other side of my office. I didn't have any problem installing the transmitter and receiver. They recognized each other immediately and paired with no issues. I didn't try streaming video, just spreadsheets, etc. The video on the TV was jumpy and would occasionally freeze for a few seconds. It was at least tolerable for my needs, but not great. This only worked for a few days, though. Now, the devices won't pair at all. I've tried unplugging everything and starting from scratch with no luck. Just a slow blink, indicating that they are unable to pair.

    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.

    Out of the box and running in less than 10 minutes. Flawless!
    Needed a wireless HDMI solution to get from receiver to ceiling projector. Had it up and running in less than 10 minutes. Working for over a month without issues. Flawless video and audio! Closest to Plug-and-Play as you'll get!

    Works with high throughput
    Hooked it up to my Wii-U, which is approx 8 ft. away. Works great - hardly any lag, no artifacts, hardly ever cuts out. Haven't tested with any further distance. No obstructions in the way either, so can't comments on performance with things in the way.

    Works well
    Easy setup, performance is pretty good. For laptop use, it does not identify the end device (usually a tv) as a monitor and therefore can't extend display or set resolution. Other than that, works well

    it works
    the only negative, is when someone walks between the 2 units while showing slides or movies, that person interrupts the signal

    as good as specs
    haven't used it intensively, only tested the distance and angle. in the same room you can pretty much align the pair in any direction and it will work.
    outside tested the max working distance is indeed ~30m, even you rotate one +/-~90degrees.
    hope it will last for a long time.

    Signal is now where it's needed
    Cable was (here) and it was needed over [there} where the TV was going to be set up. Didn't want to re-run cable under the house or cut open the drywall {and go around a door}. Plug one in at cable... plug in other by TV..... DONE!

    Works great with my projector.
    The wireless hdmi stopped working on my epson projector so I gave this a shot. Works great and sends a very clear picture. Love the fact its uncompressed so there is no lag.

    Works great. LEDs are too bright.
    The LEDs are similar in brightness to looking directly at the sun. A little bit of black tape fixed that right up.
