Unless, as I said, you got there first with your video sender and have been blocking some of the wireless channels, just did a scan at home and found Wireless networks on 6, 7, 11 & 12. My neighbour when he moved in last year wondered why he got such poor transfer rates at lower channels. It was meiankb said:I now consider video senders use of the 2.4Ghz band to be a lost cause, and the digital (buffered) network mechanism that is used between Windows MCE computers and XBox 360 extenders to be the only practical solution. One can only hope that manufacturers will bring out standalone WiFi-networked replacements for video senders; albeit at a somewhat higher cost. Since the required buffering will inevitably add in a slight delay, that might make infra-red control of remote devices appear a bit slow.
Nope. You will start running into signal integrity issues with SCART leads much above 5m. 10M are available but at a serious cost (Lektropaks do a 10m for £41) and then you have got to route/plumb in such a monster cable.flotzie said:would i just do better using a long scart lead?
No idea, but at lengths over say a couple of meters cable quality does start to make itself known. At that price it might be worth a try it and see.flotzie said:would this lead be okay?
I got the lead but get a slight humming noise. I'll give your suggestion a try.Ian_m said:No idea, but at lengths over say a couple of meters cable quality does start to make itself known. At that price it might be worth a try it and see.
One tip, with long SCARTs remove pins 19 (Video out) and sometimes pins 2 &3 (audio out) at the far end (TV) as these signals can couple into the video signal and cause ghosted pictures and background noise on audio. I have to do this with my cheapy Maplin SCART leads years ago. Or just buy long "one way" SCART leads, which a quick Google reveals nobody making them any more ???
