Good points:
Really pleased with this item - as a remote controlled scart switcher. Works very well as a scart switcher with remote control and digital audio (must be coaxial rather than optical). Works with RGB scart sockets - picture quality is as good as if the item is plugged directly into you TV. You can switch either with the remote, with the buttons on the unit or automatically (by switching the equipment you want to watch off and on - shows the latest one to be switched on or the only one left on). Can switch between 4 scarts each with their own coaxial digital audio.
Bad points:
The 'sender' part of this item is OK but not great - it can transmit the picture and sound from one of the 4 scarts to another room - you plug in a small receiver in the other room (plug in the power and then connect it with a scart cable to the TV you want to transmit to. You can choose one of the 4 scarts from the other room on the small receiver box (quite clever). Picture quality is OK but not great (in my case, the second TV is about 8 meters away, via a hallway). If the picture quality isn't good, try changing the frequency of transmission (4 separate settings, 1-4) on both the main unit and the receiver. The first setting I tried didn't work well at all (bad interference), but the second one worked OK. If you really want to transmit a picture around the house, try a more expensive/powerful unit. This item is really a scart switcher with the transmitter function tagged on.

Good points:
Looks good
Bad points:
Just doesnt work reliably. I accept I may have a faulty unit, but since Audiovisual do not seem to want to respond to customer problems, its difficult to confirm without a replacement unit.

I'm only trying to transmit just 8 meter through no walls and the unit is just not watchable. (Data sheet says 30 meter I beleive? mmm!

As they do not seem to be interested in any after sales service I have little option other than to warn others that in my opinion you may be wasting your money
