I did buy one of these at your recommendation. And it does work flawlessly, without the fix. But I didn't like the wires. However, I have not tried this yet, If I wish to put a device, I the adjoining room, ok you got me, its a vcr, the cable on the emitter is just long enough to reach the inside of the wall of where the vcr is placed, if I plug in the emitter, does it negate the on board transmitter? Kind of like the principle of the headphone jack, plug it in and it cuts off the mains?
I can certainly try this on my own, but before I pull my TV out of the wall, I was just curious if anyone has tried this. I have a 12ft AV cable attached to the back of the VCR, which has a coax to the TV, and I have not yet built a MD for this room. I would however like to pipe the VCR output into a pvr500 card, and share its output, throughout the house. My wife has quite the collection of Disney VCR movies, that are not yet available on DVD, and she would like to be able to watch them from anywhere there is currently an MD.
