This is a guide for all the people who get confused with anything Video senders and relevent.


Many people find the idea of a video sender confusing! What are the benefits and what are the differences between a £40 item and a £160 version? This guide will hopefully clear it up while showing you a variety of items that will help you. Ill also include a glossary at the end which hopefully if i can add to later aswell!



What are the benefits?

The main benefits of a video sender is the ability to send a picture from one tv to another in a seperate room wirelessly. This is known as the principle behind all video sender systems. Other models allow you to change the channel on your source equipment e.g. Freeview box which is located in your Front room.

    for example, "I have a dvd player i want to watch in my bedroom while my husband/kids watch in the main room"

Answer:    Thats fine. Lots of people buy for this reason.  With most of our video senders, you simply when installed, pop the      
                  dvd into the dvd player, take the dvd remote with you into your bedroom. Then you can press play when you are 
                  ready without having to run downstairs and run back up again!



The products & what they do

This is a selection of some of the products available for sale.


DigiSender Control Zentrum (DG420)




This is a stunning lookin DigiSender Zentrum with the most features available on the market. It has the ability to transmit your picture like all the other video senders and have the added feature of 'recording' from another source. Therefore if you are upstairs, you can watch other sources while you have programmed it to copy to your VCR or DVD recorder!

The second and most important if you are a cable customer, this Digisender has IRDA enabled remote relay sytsem. Because cable & NTL Telewest have IRDA enabled remote controls, this is one of 2 systems in the world that has this amazing feature. the other is a Digisender X4 ( DG400). This means that you can use your remote control in the second room as intended.

This product has the option of adding your camcorder, games console etc to the front of the Zentrum. As long as it has the option and RCA video left/right audio this will plug into this socket. ( see shop description for images)
Transmit up to 4 sources. Currently this is the most available. You can transmit up to 4 devices using the 4 SCART connections located at the rear of the device.

Note: The only problems we have found is the new Silver Samsung boxes that have recently been introduced. Therefore we would advise you of another product that works (email us).




DigiSender X4 Gold (DG400)




This popular system also has the ability for IRDA remote control transmition as described above. The additional remote supplied allows the user in the second room to switch sources. Aternatively, it will automatically switch to an available source when the power is turned off.

Transmit up to 4 sources. Currently this is the most available. You can transmit up to 4 devices using the connections supplied located at the rear of the device. (2 digiconnectors + 2 RCA phono inputs).

This system has been popular with added extras. For example, if you want to receive a picture in a second bedroom, you can buy an additional receiver ( dg40rx). This will mean a combined set up of a transmitter in the front room, single receiver in bedroom 1 and a second in bedroom 2. All are able to receive a picture from the transmitter!
The DigiEye technology also means this video sender has 16 remote extender channels, meaning your neighbour cant change your channels. A worlds first!

Note: The only problems we have found is the new Silver Samsung boxes that have recently been introduced. Therefore we would advise you of another product that works (email us).



The NEW DigiSender ® PlugnGo™ Video Sender (DX1000)



This is the latest addition to the DigiSender range. It is by far the most easiest to install, hence the name plugngo and the best value for money. £44.99 - bargain! The small transmitter plugs discreetly into your SCART socket.

This pack contains everything you need to get your satellite channels to another TV in your home - without wiring or clutter!

You still can change the channels, but not IRDA enabled NTL or Telewest boxes. The purchase of a DG100DE Digieye would be needed if you want this feature.
