The most typical example is the case where we placed a TV (or monitor) in another room by connecting the video with a long cable (or with an extender) to our TV system in the main room: when we are in the room remote, although we can see the signal of one of the devices in the main room, we have no way to control them. That is, when we are away from our readers and decoder are well positioned in the room, we are not able to change the channel of Sky decoder or press "play" to start the movie we want to see.
