HTR Reviews Actiontec MyWirelessTV Wireless HDMI Kit

We can all agree that cables are best, but it’s also true that sometimes it’s just not possible (or maybe convenient) to run them and that’s where wireless technology lends an ever useful hand. I’ve never played with a general purpose wireless HDMI device, but I get questions on them all the time so it’s great to see other sites reviewing them.

MyWirelessTV uses Actiontec’s own 802.11n WiFi protocol that operates in the 5GHz band. It supports the transmission of a 1080p/60 signal (2D and 3D) and multichannel audio at a distance up to 150 feet. (WHDI also operates in the 5GHz band, with products generally listing a range of 100 feet.) The package includes two relatively small boxes that measure 4.75 by 4.125 by 1.25 inches. The transmitter unit (MTWTV-8400C0) has one HDMI 1.4 input to accept the signal from a source or AV receiver, as well as one HDMI 1.4 output to pass that signal through to a local display via an HDMI cable while you wirelessly transmit the signal to a remote location. That means you can send the same source(s) to two displays.
