Essential Info

The Buffalo Electronics Home Theater IR Kit includes everything you need to remotely control audio video (A/V) components that are hidden in your equipment closet or in an entertainment cabinet.

Buffalo Electronics IR-350 Round Micro IR Sensor (1 included)
  • Unlike standard flat-panel infrared repeaters, these units increase the installation options by providing a clean and unobtrusive look.
  • The Repeaters can install in any ½-inch opening, and extends about ½-inch from the wall after installation. Typical mounting locations include equipment cabinets, ceilings, walls, inside speakers and other low-profile locations. The round micro sensor can be installed in any standard electrical box or P-ring.
  • These Tube-Style Infrared Repeaters also features voltage regulation, allowing for consistent sensitivity and immunity from power supply noise. Furthermore, an LED confirms when an infrared signal is received.
  • Typical range is 40 ft. with acceptance angle of 130 degrees. Extensive shielding and special ground plane PCB design creates robust immunity to electrical noise.

  • Buffalo Electronics DV9-500 9-Volt DC 500mA Power Supply (1 included)
  • This power supply is for use with Buffalo Electronics' 4 Emitter Connecting Block.

  • Buffalo Electronics IR-100 4 Emitter Connecting Block (1 included)
  • The Four Emitter Infrared Connecting Block is a device that collects signals from the Round Micro IR Sensor, processes them and sends the signals to your audio/video equipment via an infrared emitter. With its robust construction and comprehensive noise shielding, the Four Emitter Infrared Connecting Block is designed to provide you with a highly-reliable and accurate audio/video control system.
    You can configure the Infrared Connecting Block using multiple options, depending on
  • the size and scope of your audio/video system. If multiple connecting blocks will be used, the system allows for two different expansion options: one for situations where only additional flashers are required, and another for scenarios where you might need additional flashers and repeaters. You can link up to 15 infrared repeaters to the Connecting Block.
  • The Infrared Connecting Block also features LED flashers, making installation a snap. If the system is installed correctly, the LED flashers will light up when IR signals are sensed. The Infrared Connecting Block features four voltage-regulated flasher output jacks, allowing each Connecting Block to control up to four audio/video devices. To ensure proper installation, the unit must be installed near the audio/video equipment and near a 115-VAC outlet.

  • Buffalo Electronics IR-E1 Mini Stick-On IR Emitter (4 included)
  • 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).
  • The mini stick-on emitter includes a 6 foot cable between the emitter head and the mini-plug.
  • What's Included

  • 1x - Buffalo Electronics IR-350 Round Micro IR Sensor (with mounting kit, dark lens and clear lens)
  • 1x - Buffalo Electronics DV9-500 9-Volt DC 500mA Power Supply
  • 1x - Buffalo Electronics IR-100 4 Emitter Connecting Block
  • 4x - Buffalo Electronics IR-E1 Mini Stick-On IR Emitter

    JARED -- worthington, OH   8/28/2011
    Simple unit to instal however did not work well with 59" LCD
    Zvander -- cherry hill, NJ   8/17/2011
    This is an excellent product. I purchased one several years back because I wanted to mount my flat panel on the wall with no wires showing. I mounted the TV on the wall with the IR sensor right under the TV. Then I had all my other equipment in a cabinet on the other side of the wall. You just point any remote toward the TV and they work... perfectly. Customer service is fantastic too. When I first connected the unit I was having some issues. I called customer service,explained my issue and the guy said sounds like a power supply issue. He shipped one out no charge and when I received it, just a couple of days later, it worked!
    WILLIAM -- fort worth, TX   2/3/2011
    Worked as advertised
    JUTAMAT -- koh samui, XX   12/25/2010

    RICHARD A -- muskego, WI   11/4/2010
    Returned a unit that didn't do what I need and ordered replacement. great service.
    TOM -- massapequa park, NY   10/15/2010
    Worked great, excellent product.
    ROY -- rochester, MA   7/11/2010
    I ditched two Verizon fios digital boxes and mounted a standard definition box near my media panel in the basement. I can now control the box from any of the three tv's using the Verizon remotes that I did not return. However, all three tv's must watch the same station (not a problem as these tv's are never used at the same time). The emitter has a pass through so I can control the box from the basement where I addes a 4th tv. System works great!!
    JOE -- saddle brook, NJ   2/26/2010
    Excellent product! Very easy to install & it performs perfectly! Thank you, Joe, Electrical Excellence, NJ
    MICHAEL -- rio linda, CA   11/22/2009
    Item somewhat worked. The receiving eye and powered repeater box worked as advertised, however the 4 little IR output repeaters did not appear to function. I had an OLD IR output repeater with the same male plug laying around from a previous IR system I owned so I plugged that one in and it worked fine. I have no need for more than one ir output repeater so it served my purpose. If I needed all 4 of the IR outputs I would have had to spend more money and purchase ones that worked, or this item would have been sent back.
