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.
