      My wife wanted a way to watch DVR recordings made on our Family Room unit in the upstairs bedroom. This was the only one I found using the 5.8GHz signal range. I was a little worried what the picture would look like with all the emphasis in the instructions about pointing the transmitter antenna as directly to the receiver antenna as possible but, when I turned it on, it was perfect! I figure the signal travels through the floor, through a closet and to the receiver on the nightstand. Remote functions as if it were actually controlling a DVR in the same room!

      I love it when a product works as advertised.

      Does not work with old style transmitter

      Do not buy this if you have the transmitter that has the seperate antenna for the remote relay feature. Only buy if your transmitter looks the same as the reciever pictured here. Also,...Read complete review

      Do not buy this if you have the transmitter that has the seperate antenna for the remote relay feature. Only buy if your transmitter looks the same as the reciever pictured here. Also, do not expect any customer support from RF-Link or expect them to honor the warranty. I could not even get them to respond to my email or phone calls. They do not answer the phone and ignore voicemail. The original transmitter/receiver combo pack I bought 18 months ago is still working well as are the used ones I bought second-hand in place of the one I bought new. I do not know if the new version I purchased here and elswhere which I returned was bad, poor quality, or if it was because the new version is not backwards compatible. Quite possibly two or more of the above considering their lack of customer service. I am giving this two stars only because the old version works well. Just realize you are taking your chances that you are just wasting your time or if it breaks after the generous 30 return period that B&H provides.

        This thing does exactly what it says. Follow instructions, plug it in, hook it up and you're watching TV in any room in the house, without calling the cable guy for an additional box! GREAT!!
        No wires to run, no drilling holes , no cable installation, just plug and go! I've brought 2 units planning to buy more! IT WORKS!!

        Comments about RF-Link AVS-5813 Add-On Receiver:

        Plug and play is really all you need to do. The only time consuming part is getting the two antennas aligned properly but once you do the sound and picture quality are great.

              Comments about RF-Link AVS-5813 Add-On Receiver:

              Two of these were connected to TV monitors in rooms behind a stage. The transmitter was approximately 250 feet away connected to a Sony Camcorder. The result was amazing! Clear sharp pictures on the TVs and the sound was sharp. The only thing that wasn't great was that I didn't learn about them sooner!

                            Relay analog video signal thru walls to 2 tvs.
                            Works excellent!
                            Be patient when tuning...it will work, just try different angles until pic and sound comes thru clear.

                            We have areas in our home that did not get wired for cable tv or satellite. This is the answer to that problem. Works perfectly even in the garage.

                              I added this as a second receiver to watch TV in another room. The receiver is about 50 feet away from the sender and the signal must pass through numerous walls.

                              It works perfectly. Very easy to connect and set up.

                              I would purchase this product from this seller again.
