Top Customer Reviews
In comparison, the newer model has better controls and pairing (so far) and is missing the remote control that was needed to pair and setup the older one. Boxes are the same size and shape, but new button faces mean less likely to break.
HDMI ports are somewhat loose, but I recall that from the old style too. Nothing a few zip ties won't fix.
The receiver is small enough to fit behind my TV, and this time Actiontec included Velcro mounting stickers, which I had purchased last time.
The IR blaster is much better than the old design - the transmitter has Velcro, but the IR actually bends around to face the eye in a much better way. The IR receiver however is the same, but lacking any adhesive. Double sided tape to the rescue.
Pairing was instantaneous. No setting or configuration required. Signal is generally okay when stable, but it passes through a floor into a utility room with many pipes and ducts. Remote repose time appears to be acceptable. Changing channels and menus not frustrating yet. Time will tell, same on picture stability.
My old model went through a firewall and performed very well for almost 4 years. I hope to get the same out of this device.
1 WEEK UPDATE: IR channel changing is spotty, and signal and sound frequently get interference from transmitter less than 10 feet away through 1 floor. I am hoping that tinkering with the placement of both devices might improve the performance. Right now it is almost unusable.
It's simple to set up. Actiontec said in the future you will be able to buy additional receivers for another bedroom, but currently it's new 11_21_14 as of today. The receivers they are selling on Amazon currently are the first generation and won't work with the 2nd generation. So make sure if you buy an additional receiver in the future it's mywirelesstv 2 and not the first generation. I hope this information helps all nerds :)
Next obstacle: signal cutting in & out! Due to the new digital piracy restrictions I had an issue with the signal sometimes not showing on my main tv. After further research I discovered this is due to the HDMI communication with Directv, Cable providers and slighty older TV & Home Theater devices. I solved this issues by purchasing an HDMI splitter. The HDMI splitter removed the need to connect my main tv to the Actiontec device at all so the issue disappeared.
My final obstacle: getting the remote to work from the 2nd location. Although the signal's reception is very limited and delayed, I did manage to get it to work.
Pros: If it works for you it is a VERY clear HD like signal.
Cons: very limited remote signal access with a huge delay.
May not work for everyone.
The instructions were not terribly helpful when I tried to set the unit up with a Comcast box, but once I finally figured out the cabling configuration, the units synced nicely and the quality of the picture and sound were both excellent. My distance is about 50 feet from one room, down a hall, and into another room.
One annoying problem is that the unit has to be rebooted every so often during the day.
The product certainly meets a need, and the sound and picture quality are both excellent. However, another manufacturer could easily take over this market with a more quality-built, better-engineered unit.
