Promise TV box
This is the remote head that links a TV to Ethernet while relaying infrared control codes from the remote. Up to four of these can be fitted around a building and connected back to the main box.
The natural length limitations of single-span wired Ethernet and the deliberate lack of wireless make it very hard to use this system to distribute TV outside a single building. The Promise.tv company hopes this will placate any broadcaster nervous that its content rights are being infringed.
