Powerline Homeplug adapters
« on: 07 September 2019, 16:09:14 »

Neighbour without Freesat wishes to access TV catchup on her TV. She can do this on Freeview but needs Powerline adapters to connect her modem to the TV via ring main. I use Aztech which work well. Can anyone recommend better/cheaper W.H.Y.? :y

She will be on a different phase; are you sure Powerline will work?

Huh? Different phase to who? She is not next door, but a few away, and even if on a different phase to me, that is not an issue. As far as I am aware, Powerline plugs are not phase dependent.
My 3 Aztechs work well, but I have had them for sometime, and wonder if there is better/cheaper for her now. :-\:y

No idea if they're better, but I used the previous version of these (exactly the same I'd imagine just a different plastic case) in our last house for about 3yrs, without issue. Never even had to reset them.

Our application was the same, linking router and PS4 to watch things on catch up.

Thanks Jimmy, I looked at those as they are a good price. Only drawback is the lack of plug through option, which may be limiting if sockets are single. :y

Streets and/or rows of houses in any given area are usually fed with sequential phases from a 3-phase road cable: Red Yellow Green and so on, in order to balance the loading across phases.
Communication over mains power lines relies upon all units being connected to the same phase.

come the 31st of October ,we won't need to use harmonized colours like Brown, black, grey, blue, green/yellow
we could revert back to proper British Red, yellow, blue, black, green/yellow
or Try Ron's Idea

can we use green sleaving over the old stock blue though  :-\
we could have some stickers made
CAUTION
 this installation has wiring colours to 3 versions of BS7671
 great care should be taken not to F**k about with wires if you don't have a clue

Plus people that do must have good eyesight and must not be colour blind. Like my builder friend who I once caught mis-wiring putting live were neutral should go!  :o :o ::)  ;)

At least he is well aware what green, or yellow and green represents! ;D ;D ;)

A friend's, sisters's boyfriend is currently an apprentice spark.. he's also just found out he's colour blind.. what could go wrong? (He has to wear special coloured glasses .. bet that lasts about five minutes once he's in the real world and needs to look 'ard in front of his tradie mates ;D)

He won't make much money if he wears rose tinted spectacles when assessing and pricing jobs  :(
TIP:
best to shake your head side to side, have a drag of your rolley fag, "oh dear " exhale smoke "this aint gonna be cheap" shake your head side to side, have another drag of your rolley fag, "not seen one this bad for years" whilst exhaling and coughing .

then think of a big number and add as many zeros as you think you'll get away with  :y
