Works perfectly – PAT-530 5.8GHz Wireless A/V STB Transmitter/Receiver with IR Signal Extension Wire Set (Blue) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Easy to setup. Decent range (I got about 50 feet behind wall when noise started showing up.) My home setup has it at a distance of 15 feet behind one wall. So works noise-free IR works fine. no glitches seen so far Small device. Hides behind other equipment (Except Rx needs to be exposed if you want to use IR.)
Cons:
IR sensor (in receiver unit) catches some interference from CFL lamps. Could be filtered better. I think it will keep transmitting on RF whenever it catches this interference. This has not affected IR performance for me though. One issue. After a short power outage, 2/4 times TV did not show any video. Power-cycling Rx recovers from that state. I am not sure if my TV is at fault or Rx. Rx should also have a IR sensor cable for people like me who want to keep everything inside cabinets.
Other:
They should sell Tx and Rx separately. I need one more Rx.
Bottomline:
Product works fine. I recommend.
