I use the video sender/receivers to send  images to my TV.
I use the PC video sender to send computer images to my TV.

Check the X10 deals.... they have been offering it at a really low price.

Cool.... your options are open!

You can:

  • Use ether the regular video sender (or the PC to TV video sender) to broadcast to your TV.
  • You could connect the Audio/video outputs to a modulator and use coax cable to connect to a TV.
  • Or you could just run a RCA video cord to your TV.

If u have tv out on your video card, u can do what u would like in another room on a tv
from your pc. So far with my video send/receiver, i can get clear picture, but never clear sound though.

You may want to double check your sound output setting on your computer. If you settings are to broadcast the sound through your computer speakers.... that is likely where the sound output is.... not the media card.

My guess would be you either have a cordless phone, or a wireless computer network interfering.

Bill is probability right. The video sender/receiver units have 4 channels (A, B, C, & D) try switching the channel. Be sure you have the same channel on both the sender and receiver units.
