works well, though limited

 

Works great as long as you know that you aren't going to hide the devices more then 2-3 feet away

Give's you the ability to control your devices from out of sight. fairly easy set up

Could use better documentation. The cables are much shorter then I think they could have been

Works fine

 

We wanted to put our AV receiving in a cabinet. This was on a shell shocker deal, so I grabbed one. Heck for ten bucks, it was worth a shot. It did exactly what we wanted it to. I put the receiver in a cabinet, hiding the receivers's IR sensor, put...

It does what it's supposed to do

Cable for "IR in" repeater dongle is a bit short, but that had no negative impact on our install

I recommend

 

You are getting IR amplifier/hub. If you are DYI kind of person I have a feeling (have not tried yet) that you can supplement this kit with nice "hidden" sensors/emitters from other similar equipment available online which requires more expensive...

All you need to have good IR link between one nice and clean room - source (Actually you can try to make it two rooms if you are creative, I guess. I have not tried yet) and another - destination where your heavy, bulky and ugly equipment lives ;...

I want to keep the amplifier piece which requires ac/dc together with the rest of the controlled equipment and have just a small sensor in my living room. The cord from that sensor to the amplifier is too short - not very convenient - that is why you...

Can't go into detail due to Product Review Guidelines.

Works as an IR expander

Doesn't work as a wireless extender

Consumer review by:

OK product; don't listen to "N/A on 7/15/2011"

 

The reviewer N/A on 7/15/2011 doesn't understand what IR is. He says his "tech knowledge" is "5 - high" but it ought to be at "1 - Low". *Infrared* requires line of site, and this is an *infrared* repeater, so you obviously need line of site to this...

1) This device is a simple repeater ; 2) This device picks up IR signals from your remote, & has a wire that leads down to your DVD player. At the end of the wire is an IR blaster, which repeats your remote's IR signals to your DVD player

Cheap quality ; Wires only 2' long?? You'd better have somewhere in plain sight to set the receiver that is no more than 2' away from where you hide your DVD player, or this won't work for you

Consumer review by:

Works, but doesn't extend.

 

I was looking to put my equipment in the basement so unless I can splice that cable or their is a cable extension that will work, I'm hosed.

Works just like it should

It doesn't extend very far. The cable from the small input receiver to the larger receiver is like 2 ft. which really isn't good for anything unless you have a cabinet right next to your tv

Consumer review by:

Remote IR extender

 

Not being able to find any description of this device, I imagined some sort of magic amplifier that would take my remote signal and transfer it, wirelessly, to my devices hidden behind a wall to which the flat screen TV is attached. Instead I received...

So far, it works. The target receiver is half the size of an egg and is easily concealed

Documentation somewhat spotty. Requires wiring to each device
