    The 2 zone connecting blocks works as advertised. I've had one in use for over a year with no issues. I have multiple IR emitters input into each zone with the output controlling two separate cable boxes. This allows me to use only a couple of cable boxes to feed many TV's and to use cable boxes remotely to feed small wall-mounted TV's where local use of a cable box is not feasible.

    Once installed, the device works well. However, the electrical design of the device is counter-intuitive in that all three emitter ports must have an emitter plugged into them in order for the device to function at all (they're wired in series). This made for some frustrating troubleshooting, but once I realized the subtlety, everything worked well.

    I was very satisfied with the 2 zone connecting block, but I was not happy when I read that both zones and the common must be hooked up at the same time. I had only purchased one emitter because right now I only need one zone. however it did not work, |I had to plug a head phone jack into zone 2 for it to work until I purchase aonther emitter.

    Work great, but I suggest buying amplfied block by Xantech. so you can use high powered blasters and hence less wires
