HDJuiceBox, a Solution to a Difficult to Overcome Problem.
We live in the Dordogne area of France where old stone farmhouses abound. TV reception isn’t a problem, Satellite dishes offer signals from almost everywhere. Getting those signals around the house is much more of a challenge. Stone walls sometimes a metre thick are an effective barrier to WiFi signals from routers and drills for TV co-axial cables.
I saw your advert for the HDJuiceBox and hoped the system would solve this ‘impenetrable’ problem. From order to delivery by courier took five days across a weekend; outstanding service!
Installation to switch on took about twenty minutes mostly because I forgot to specify French type plugs on the power leads. After the units synchronised, a perfect picture appeared on the new HD TV. I then plugged in the remote control emitters; they also worked perfectly. We now have satellite TV programs from two decoders, selected and controlled remotely plus the possibility to connect a laptop to the Internet where previously no WiFi signal could be received.

What a revelation
I had tried HDMI over Wireless only to find that if someone stood in between the transmitter and receiver then we lost signal and this was even when only 10M from receiver to transmitter.
So the HDJuiceBox seemed one answer but I was more than a little sceptical if it would work, seemed like black magic to me!!
Besides plugging a HDMI cable into an "out" rather than an "in" which baffled me for 5 minutes the system worked first time and the IR Pass Thru is a brilliant feature.
It really works! Sky HD and Blu-ray through the power-line! After disappointment with wireless video senders this was a superb solution to our tv problem. With effortless set-up and its so simple to use. The package has all the bits you need including HDMI cables. The picture quality is perfect but you can adjust the network bandwidth if needed, and you don't even have to turn the Tx or Rx boxes off, love the sleep function. One thing to keep in mind- stay away from extension cables you will loose signal quality!
Have tried several other solutions to get TV on a set some distance from an aerial point. The last one I tried was wireless HDMI system, but it worked for a while and then failed. The HDJuiceBox just plugged in and worked, no problems
I purchased the HD Juicebox with two recievers for my 1960s bungalow. It was just too difficult to rewire the existing house with HDMI so this product seemed like a great answer - allowing me to use a tv with sky and blu-ray player distribution from my lounge point. I read reviews and noticed one which said this product would not work through a fusebox, so I contacted the techo (sorry i fogot your name) and he told me he beleived it would work but if it didnt I could return the product within 7 days for a full refund. My home has got an extension which includes a supplementary fusebox which was my concern.
Anyway,I took the plunge and ordered the system - which duely arrived two days later. It was really easy to install and worked almost straight away after plugging in all the cables - you really dont have to do a lot. I was over the moon with the result because IT DOES WORK through the fusebox. I then set about installing the second receiver and had a minor problem as I couldnt get the sound to come on at this receiver. I called the tecchy (sorry still forgotten your name) and as before he couldnt have been more helpful, between us we spotted where I had gone wrong and hey presto the entire system is working like a dream. I cant say how thrilled I am to find such a great system and the infrared extension also works pefectly.
I know, I struggled finding many reviews and I just want to say - dont worry at all - this is a class product (excuse the pun) which does what it says on the box. It makes installing a TV anywhere in the house a doddle as you only have to ensure you have power to the intended location, allowing you to move it to any other part of the room if (like my wife, you like re-arranging your furniture from time to time!). It was also great dealing with a human on the phone who was willing to take the time to discuss the product and was honest, friendly and really helpful. As you can see I coudnt be happier - I know its quite expensive but you get what you pay for and if you do ever move house you can take your investment with you!! You basically avoid the need to be fixed to an aerial point and dont have the hassle of installing new wiring which by the end of it would be nearly as costly and will not be flexible or transportable.
Hope this helps anyone considering this product, it is really good and so is the company.
