  • Sticks directly onto the AV equipment
  • IR transparent, works with existing remote controls

Essential Info

This tiny emitter has a self-adhesive pad that allows it to be stuck directly to the IR sensor window of your audio/video equipment. This configuration gives you the highest level of signal transmission accuracy. Continues to allow external IR signal through (so that you can still use your remote by directly pointing it at your audio/visual component).


What's Included

  • 1x - Mini stick-on IR emitter
  • More Info

    The mini stick-on emitter includes a 6 foot cable between the emitter head and the mini-plug.

    I have been using Buffalo products for quite some time, this was purchased to add a Roku player to a system I installed a couple of years back. They work well and I have no complaints.
    MICHAEL -- fair lawn, NJ   10/9/2011
    Did not work
    PATRICK -- van nuys, CA   5/9/2011
    I bought this product because my cable box was no longer correctly changing my Tivo Series 2 recorder. However, after being gone for one week, this has proven to be a poor solution. The emitter has problems with certain channels, so I have 5 days of the wrong TV shows. I'll probably just toss it aside and look for another solution. NOT RECOMMENDED from my experience.

    We found the gauge of wire in the product to be too thin.
    MARGARET -- harwich, MA   2/17/2011
    Wish I had known about this little gadget when I first purchased by tivo! The ir that came with the tivo never worked properly with my cable box (i.e., wouldnt change the channel properly most of the time). This guy was easy to install and always changes the channel correctly.
    PHILIP -- willoughby, OH   1/10/2011
    Exactly what I wanted, an emitter for my USB-UIRT just in case the onboard emitter wasn't strong enough. Not actually using it, but if I get a 2nd cable box I might need it.
    R. SCOTT -- central, SC   1/10/2011
    Works great
    ERIC -- pine brook, NJ   12/11/2010
    Have been installing these parts for customers for a couple of years now. I have had no problems, and will continue to use them.
    PAUL -- christchurch, XX   6/28/2010
    Do the Job. v good
    JASON -- east stroudsburg, PA   6/24/2010
    Works perfectly. Would be good if it was sent with extra stick-on pads in case you have to move them later, but works great.
    DOMENIC -- lakewood, CO   5/13/2010
    works perfectly
    ERIC -- pine brook, NJ   5/10/2010
    Works well, have used before and will use again.
    BOB -- sarasota, FL   2/26/2010
    A change in cable provider required me to have a "box" installed for channel selection. Since this TV is in a cabinet, I needed the emitter to "see" the changer. It works for volume, but does not for channel changing. I'm not sure why. I still have to keep the cabinet door open.
    wsbsteven -- Missouri   1/26/2010
    Works great with 7MC Windows 7 Media Center.
    EDSON -- lansing, MI   1/14/2010
    Used these on the comcast DTAs via my Tivo series 2 because of their digital services 'upgrade'. worked like a charm!
    FREDDY -- gonzales, LA   11/15/2009
    Get's the job done for the price
    HEITH -- miami, FL   11/12/2009
    Great product, arrived quickly, good service; so I am very pleased with SMARTHOME.
    ROB -- blue bell, PA   11/4/2009
    Works perfectly with my Tivo and the new Comcast DTV adapter
    ANTHONY -- kensington, CT   9/27/2009
    Great product. Works well with Windows Media Center in Windows Vista.
    DAVID -- portland, OR   9/10/2009
    Used it on my Tivo Series 2 to control a digital cable box. Works exactly as expected. Extra long wire was appreciated since the two units are on differnt shelves and wire routing is longish.
