What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - these are the ones I use and recommend. 

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about and experienced too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. 

NOTE - Some cameras work more reliably with Class 6 Cards as a Maximum (The Mini 0801 is an example). A lot of cameras will not work properly with cards larger than 32GB - so don't just buy the biggest card you can - read the specs in the manual first. 

VERY IMPORTANT. These links go to the product, but not necessarily to the Amazon Direct supplier. I recommend selecting from Amazon themselves not the reseller storefronts..even if it costs a bit more.

Budget Wireless HDMI Transmission - does it work?

The last time I investigated wireless HDMI transmitter solutions a couple of years ago they only transmitted over line-of-sight and cost well over £500. Fortunately things have progressed and there are now a number of more affordable options available.

Whilst looking (unsuccessfully) for the Raspberry Pi last week on CPC Farnell's site I saw that they had a special offer on a generic no-name transmitter-receiver set for £120 so I picked one up. (This has subsequently returned back to its normal price of £156).

I really wasn't confident that it would work, given the lackluster performance of the first generation devices. You'll need to watch the video to see if my pessimism was warranted or unfounded.

UPDATE - 25/08/12 - You can now buy a self-powered HDMI splitter that works well with this device. Blog entry here.

Are you 100% sure that artifacting was from the box or could it be the TV itself - maybe you should have investaged a bit more! But well done on another good review - keep them up!

@matt I'm never 100% sure of anything, but I wasn't in the mood to go dragging the small TV around the house to plug it directly into the Sky box to test it properly. The mosquito noise is only visible in very specific circumstances and at extremely close range. It's really not a factor on a screen of this size at a sensible viewing distance.

Used this to connect from the lounge to the bedroom, just on the edge of the range so kept dropping out but managed to buy a long hdmi cable an moved the receiver - works perfectly now.

Í find the units do get a little hot in operation so dont leave them on all the time.

Cheers for the review.
