Works perfectly, and gives me the look I was looking for since it's installed in a dedicated home AV room. Must cleaner install than having sets of emitters next to every device, and much more cost effective as well. Haven't had any compatibility issues whatsoever.

have now had 2 of these quit working. they outlast their warrantee by a few weeks. So i have $80 worth of useless, dead blasters that smarthome says are not eligible for return.

Works well, the instructions are vague. The first one I ordered didn't work out of the box. The second one worked fine. In my setup, this sends IR signals more than 18 feet across a room. This is strong enough to bounce IR signals off walls, to flood the room.
