From the Manufacturer
The Belkin ScreenCast AV 4 lets you wirelessly connect up to four AV devices to your HDTV without cluttering your entertainment space with cables. Connect Blu-ray players, game consoles, DVRs, and any other HDMI-enabled device to the ScreenCast AV 4 using an HDMI cable and you're ready to go. You can even store your devices in a separate room from your TV and still remain connected. The ScreenCast AV 4 uses Wi-Fi to transmit audio and video signals from your AV devices to your TV, and has 5 GHz wireless technology to ensure high-fidelity, interference-free transmission. It also supports 5.1-channel surround sound so you get the most out of your movies and music. Compatible with 2D and 3D video resolutions up to 1080p, this adapter is an ideal accessory for wall-mounted TVs.
Access Up to Four Entertainment Devices Wirelessly
The Belkin ScreenCast AV 4 adapter consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter can connect up to four HDMI-enabled media devices including Blu-ray players and game consoles. Using Wi-Fi, the transmitter broadcasts audio and visual signals from the device to which it is attached. These signals are then received by the receiver, which relays the audio and video to your TV via a second HDMI cable. It functions just like a direct connection, but eliminates the eyesore of wire and cable clutter.
Expansive Wi-Fi Range for Added Flexibility
The transmitter has a line-of-sight range of up to 100 feet*, and can also go through walls and other solid objects over shorter distances. This gives you flexibility when choosing a place for your AV devices. With the ScreenCast, you can position your devices away from your TV and out of sight, or even in another room.
5 GHz for Exceptional Audio and Video Quality
The ScreenCast has been equipped with 5 GHz in order to ensure superior audio and video quality. By using a 5 GHz frequency band, the adapter can avoid interference from the 2.4 GHz frequency used by most home routers. 5 GHz also delivers a more powerful, reliable signal than other Wi-Fi frequencies, and offers better penetration of walls and other solid surfaces. This ensures that your audio and video always reach your TV in crisp, pristine quality.
Mountable Design with IR Blaster
The ScreenCast features a versatile, easy-to-install design. The receiver can be positioned on a tabletop or mounted on a wall (mounting hardware included), making it an ideal complement for wall-mounted TVs. It also comes with an easy-to-use infrared blaster, which offers remote control of your AV device.
Broad Resolution Compatibility and 3D Support
The adapter is compatible with a wide range of video resolutions. It can support 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p 60 Hz, as well as display standards like VGA, XGA, and SXGA. It can also transmit 3D signals, allowing you to enjoy 3D Blu-ray and games without any loss of quality. The adapter supports 5.1-channel surround sound**.
Product and Warranty Information
The Belkin Screencast AV 4 transmitter and receiver are backed by a two-year limited warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
Thursday, June 14: Received the Screencast. It worked perfectly with my DVD player, my laptop and Apple TV, but it did not work with my cable receiver (a standard Comcast receiver). With the cable, there was only an occasional flicker of picture and no audio. This appears to be a problem that multiple reviewers have had. I tried placing the Screencast receiver and transmitter side by side, a few feet away, several feet away, etc. There was no wall or anything blocking the signal. Also, I power cycled the Screencast, changed the HDMI wires, tried turning off my router just in case there was a frequency issue, etc. Nothing worked.
Friday, June 15: I contacted Belkin support through the Belkin website. I received an auto-reply saying I should expect a response within one business day.
Tuesday, June 19: Still no response from Belkin support, and so I e-mailed firstname.lastname@example.org and asked for a response. Later that night I received a response with a phone number to call for support.
Wednesday, June 20: The person I spoke with at support was nice but couldn't help me. His advice was more or less limited to power cycling the Screencast and checking the HDMI wires. After I spent a good deal of time on hold, I was transferred to a Level 2 technician. This person was also nice but didn't have any additional advice. After more time on hold, I was then told that a Level 3 technician would call me later in the day. I stayed home waiting on the call, but it never came.
Friday, June 22: I wasted more time trying to get the Screencast to work with my cable receiver. It wouldn't. The Level 3 technician still hadn't called, and so I called Belkin support again.Read more ›
When I got it all in and hooked up, I was very pleased with the performance. I've had crystal clear HD content with no glitches (I've been using it for a month now) The only drawback is the automation of changing sources. Since I have a Harmony remote, I set it to change between them in a sequence, but it doesn't always catch. I resorted to putting "soft buttons" (customizable buttons on the touchscreen of the remote) for the commands that are on the remote that comes with the Screencast AV4. This allows me to dismiss the dialogue box once it has changed to a different source.
Note: When I first tried using the blu-ray player, it wouldn't play a DVD, only blu-rays. The screen would go green and the top would be pixelated. I tried and tried and even opened a service ticket with Belkin.Read more ›
+ Wireless video/audio quality appears to be equal to direct-HDMI connected video
+ 40 foot video feed through my walls worked flawlessly
+ No interference (that I could detect) with my wireless network
+ Basic setup surprisingly easy
- Flaky behavior of remote control
- Slow to change display input source
The ScreenCast AV4 was fairly simple to attach to my home theater. The package includes two pieces of hardware; one attaches to your television and a power outlet, the other attaches to each of your AV devices and a second power outlet. Once done, I powered on both of the Belkin boxes and within 2 minutes there was video on my TV.
Because this was my first time to power on the ScreenCast AV, a setup menu appeared asking me to select my language. After that it said it was preparing to help me setup my inputs with usable labels (i.e. "Satellite", "Blu-Ray", etc...). Unfortunately, something went wrong with the ScreenCast AV at this point and that menu never appeared. The included remote control, used to change inputs on the Belkin between your AV devices, quit working completely. Fortunately, I powered one of the Belkin boxes off, then back on, and the remote control started working.Read more ›
