Essential Info

Control your whole-house audio or home theater system from the comfort of your PC. This is essentially a powerful learning remote that transmits IR signals in response to an RS-232 signal. It learns IR codes from your existing remotes and stores them directly on your PC where there are fewer memory constraints.

Due to the nature of this product, Smarthome cannot offer programming support. We cannot assist in the troubleshooting or development of applications and/or code for this product.

    MARK -- beaverton, OR   4/26/2012
    This was my third probe and like the other two it did not work. I did receive a refund and a suggestion of another product to try which did work. This would have been rated zero stars however I did get good customer service.
    BRIAN -- killingworth, CT   3/29/2012
    Does not work with a 2450 I/OLinc. 1/8" stereo connector on it. Is not wired correctly to match the I/OLinc sensor jack. Had to use a home made adapter to correct the signals.
    MARK -- beaverton, OR   3/19/2012
    Item was dead on arrival. I called and was given a couple of options to replace it. I was very satisfied with the quick replacement. I give replace policy five stars but only one star for dead unit. I haven't had a chance to test the new one yet.
    DANIEL -- hanover, MD   2/26/2012
    Dosent work. The Probe dosent turn the IOLinc status On even after trying two differant probes and IOLincs.
    OmegaQuest -- Maryland   2/25/2012
    After two of these units and two differant IOLincs to verify its the probes and not the IOLincs, this device still dosent work. The probe never turns the IOLinc Sensor status to On even though it has a 20v power source provided to it when it should turn on... I will be returning this product ASAP.
    Berkinet -- SF Bay Area   3/19/2011
    Works well with a good, bright light source. But, contrary to the advertised specs, it will not work with many most LEDS.. in particular low output LEDs commonly used power indicators on audio/video equipment.
    WAYNE -- cumming, GA   12/17/2009
    The blaster is working, but the blaster itself is like a small light bulb - looks a little fagile.
    RICHARD -- bowmanville, ON   10/9/2009
    Works ok. Very directional. You really nead to point the end towards the target. This makes for a trickier setup.
    VICKIE -- washougal, WA   8/17/2009
    Very difficult to find anywhere else, good price and came relatively quickly. The product was very easy to use.
    ANGIELEAN -- gainesville, FL   8/22/2008
    Is exactly what it's supposed to do at a very reasonable price.
    IAN -- saskatoon, SK   8/6/2007
    Range is only about 10 feet with a USB-UIRT, but otherwise it works as advertised...
    RONALD -- dracut, MA   5/31/2007
    Nothing to say! Its a wire with an LED on the end.
    BRUCE -- san francisco, CA   1/17/2007
    works perfectly
    DAN -- landenberg, PA   11/6/2006
    wont work with GC-100. Not enough compatibility information

    ERIC -- stockbridge, GA   2/13/2006
    It was a great experience. I was a little concern about ordering through the internet, however I was impress by the accuracy of the product and customer service. Eric
