If you’re seeking the convenience of viewing premium digital or analog cable programming on multiple TVs but haven’t wanted to invest in multiple set-top boxes or satellite receivers, TV Spider’s Video Source Extender may be the affordable answer you’ve been dreaming of. In fact, the TV Spider kit will let you view signals from just about any single home-entertainment device–be it an audio/video receiver, DVD player, VCR, laptop computer, or baby monitor–on all the TVs in your house simultaneously, without requiring additional TV inputs. It’s even designed so you can hook it up yourself rather than having to call in a professional installer.
Will TV Spider really accommodate only one AV component? That’s right–but if said component is an AV receiver, you can use the receiver’s switching ability to route any number of devices right into the TV Spider, greatly expanding your viewing options. Also, the system features two-way data streaming, letting you hook it up with your broadband cable modem and/or use it with Pay-Per-View features, just as you would with your standard cable hook-up. Beyond losing two channels, the system is completely transparent.
What’s in the Box
A TV Spider video hub (TVS-HUB-125-VAO), a cable-entry signal director (TVS-CESD-125-CER), a 12-volt power pack (TVS-PS-12-200), a video/audio ribbon cable (TVS-RCA-3), two coaxial RF video cables (TVS-COAX-3, TVS-COAX-6), and a user’s manual.
Note: If your cable provider uses channels 124 and 125, TV Spider will block channel 124 and replace channel 125. If you need to view these cable channels, TV Spider is not for you.
