Essential Info

The interference from a wall mount TV can wreak havoc with your IR control system. Xantech designed this Universal Dinky Link IR Receiver to resist the interference from plasma, LCD and LED TVs, as well as fluorescent and compact fluorescent lighting (CFL), and sunlight - so you can mount this receiver in any room with confidence. The included Dinky Link compact, IR receiver was designed for mounting in very small spaces and has been engineered specifically to receive extended signals from up to 120 feet away. Additionally, it will resist IR interference caused by Plasma, LCD ad LED TVs, CFL lighting and sunlight. It includes a white, silver and black trim kit that snaps into place so it will match your AV equipment.

Please note: Connecting block, power supply, and emitters are sold separately - or they can all be purchased together with this receiver as a kit.

Local System Application
One application is to locate the IR receiver in a central location, near a TV, video screen and/or a speaker. The audio/video equipment can then be hidden inside a cabinet or located away from the front of a room. This will give the end-user the ability to direct a remote control to one central location and not have to worry about aiming to the respective device to be controlled.

Remote Room Application
Another application is to locate the IR receiver in a remote room. This will give the end-user the ability to control audio/video equipment from a location where the remote control no longer has the ability of direct line-of-sight.


What's Included

  • Universal Dinky Link IR Receiver, Extended Range
  • Owner's manual
  • Trim kit to match white, silver and black AV components
  • More Info

    The IR receiver can be mounted to any flat surface, using the two-sided adhesive tape supplied. An additional feature is a wire channel on the rear of the surface mount IR receiver. This will give the installer the ability to provide clean wire dressing in any direction.

    The IR receiver should be located so that it is not directly facing a light source such as lamps or displays (standard, LCD, and Plasma). When mounted near a display, it should be flush to the display and away from light reflections that may occur.

    Cable Connections
    ML95s may also be used where the 7-foot cable is not long enough. Simply cut off the mini plug, strip the leads and splice them to a 3-conductor extension cable with a terminal block or other means. Then connect the extension cable to the 3- or 4-terminal block on the connecting block.

    Don't waste your money on this. Buy the DL85 for half the cost. This IR receiver is not resistant to LED TV back lighting. I bought the DL85 first. I had a problem with IR signals continuously when the TV was on and overhead flourescent lighting was off. I thought that buying the DL95 would help as smarthome and the manufacturer claim that this receiver DL95 is resistant to LED interference. NOT SO, behaves identical to the DL85 at twice the cost. I bought these receivers to use with a 4 zone connecting block from Xantech. Unfortunately, this block does not have 3.5 mm plugs for the receivers, but a terminal strip. I had to cut off the ends of the cord to connect, so I am stuck with two receivers that don't work.
