Wirelessly connect your home theater equipment to your HDTV and keep devices out of sight
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**.

I use the ScreenCast AV to transmit Apple TV to the outside TV. Nothing else is connected. Apple TV is then wired via digital optic to an Onkyo 2.1 receiver that broadcasts wired sound to DefTech outdoor speakers and subwoofer on either side of the TV. I have an AT&T U-verse wireless cable box on the outside TV as I had problems transmitting U-verse over ScreenCast while using the TV in the family room concurrently. This is the downside and why I didn't rate 5-stars.
If you don't use the unit for some time or if it becomes un-plugged, you have to adjust and/or re-connect. That requires breaking out the manual to make sure you follow instructions so save the manual!
I recently bought the Nyrius Home wireless transmitter/receiver for various reasons thinking that based upon reviews it was a better unit. I have to say my impression of the Screencast jumped 10 fold to the positive after trying the Nyrius. I'm not sure why but the Nyrius under the same conditions as the Belkin did not work at all and will soon rest in the trash because I can no longer return it.
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. I finally found the issue on my own: I had the blu-ray video settings set to auto, which would change resolution as the content changed(menus, previews, the movie, etc). The Screencast didn't like this. I went in and changed the video output to only output 1080p and it fixed it.
It was hard to trust the reviews because I wanted to know exactly how it would work with what I wanted to do. I think I've come to see that it does "just work". Changing sources can be a slight hassle, but other than that, it's perfect for me. Now I have a TV above the fireplace and not one device showing in the room.
