      I purchased this product to try to put together a wireless mobile camcorder setup to stream live to the net. I have the transmitter in a backpack with an external lithium battery powering it. The camcorder plugs into the transmitter though a composite cable running from the camera's A/V out. I replaced the stock antenna with a 12dbi 5.8ghz L-Com Omnidirectional antenna for both the transmitter and reciever. This set up allows me to move over 150ft indoors (multiple walls with metal studs) and over 300ft outdoors and get live feeds back to my computer for streaming live to the internet. The one drawback is that I cannot shoot AND move, as walking produces interference. As long as I keep the pack stationary the signal is clear.

        Comments about RF-Link AVS-5808 5.8GHz Wireless 8-Channel Indoor Audio/Video System:

        Relay from my Satellite Receiver installed upstairs to my new HD TV in the living room on the ground floor. Physically not able to route cabling like I used to do.

        A little ringing in the video. I got rid of some of it by reducing the transmitter power output. I have not determined yet if it is coming from the Sat Rx or being generated by the product.

        Instructions need a lot of editing. I had trouble getting through the Linguish Anguish.

        Transmitter connections labeled as receiver connections and vice versa in the directions.

        Otherwise, installation is simple and obvious.

        Other than that, a great product.

          This is actually a pretty nice system but unfortunately it didn't meet the needs of my church. Wireless is great but it would not pick up from one brick building to another brick building. As long as the transmitter and receiver are in the same building it should work great. One option is to purchase an outdoor wireless antenna booster to help improve the signal if you are going to use this in different buildings.

            works very well as described except range is a little weak (40' distance application through an outside wall to an outdoor tv in a bar application) - the cheaper leapfrog and like types don't really work all that well at all....

                I had a cheap AV transmitter that didn't work very well, maybe because it operated at the same 2.4GHz as my wifi internet router. The transmission distance isn't far, maybe 20 feet, but it has to work through a 1920s lathe and plaster wall. There is an occasional slight wiggle on the video, so it is not perfect, but I don't need perfect. I am *very* happy with the product. It is actually 5-stars for me, but I think the screen-wiggle and the short distance means I have to downgrade it in comparison to other products.

                  Tired other type units to get tv to our bath but nothing would make the trip in our condo. Upgraded to this unit (from the 4-channel) and it did the job. I'm adding the amp in a few days to see if the picture will go from 4-stars to 5. Audio is as clean as it can be. I'd buy this unit again

                      I use this in my home - TX and RX are only about 40 feet apart, on two different levels of the house. Occasionally the picture "tears" at the bottom regardless of channel selected. Slight, but annoying. Sound is always excellent. I've not tested it at long distances yet.
