Essential Info

Use your existing infrared remote to control components in another room. The Remote Head IR Receiver connects to an IR Coax Adapter, which injects your commands onto your existing coaxial cable to deliver signals to A/V components in another room, up to 200 feet away. This system requires an IR Coax Engine as well as an IR emitter to deliver commands to your A/V components. All of these devices are sold separately or can be purchased as a starter kit.

How it Works - The IR receiver and coax adapter are located near the TV, and the coax engine is located near the A/V source, providing an IR emitter output. The IR receiver gets the commands from your IR remote and injects them onto the coax cable via the IR Coax Adapter. These commands are delivered to your A/V components via an IR emitter, which can be affixed to the IR window of your DVD player, VCR, or cable box.

IR Receiver Details - The Remote Head IR Receiver is safe for use around plasma televisions, and this tiny design allows for unobtrusive placement.

Expandable System Works with Multiple Televisions - The power supply included with the IR Coax Engine is powerful enough to support four IR coax adapters and their connected IR receivers. You can also connect this IR receiver to a connecting block for more complex installations.

    Works well. No interference from the TV or sunlight. Very unobtrusive since only the small sensor is in front of the TV.
    MICHAEL -- houston, TX   9/8/2009
    Works perfectly and is very small.
    MICHAEL -- massapequa, NY   8/10/2009
    The IR receiver you choose makes a difference and this one works really well. I liked it so much that I have three of them now. This unit does not pick up any interference from sunlight, the LCD TV itself or from fluorescent lighting. I also like the split design of the unit. The small sensor is barely noticeable.
    Mike P. -- long island, NY   6/21/2009
    I bought this because my LCD TV was creating too much inteference with a tube style receiver. The IR-2400 works excellent. It does not pick up any inteference from the TV at all. In addition the split design is really nice as it's pretty easy to conceal it. The feedback light is on the remote unit so it's really inconspicuous.
    BRIAN -- ukiah, CA   7/14/2008
    Works great with my Panasonic and Maxtent plasma TV's. I use them to extend two Tivo boxes with no problems.
    KEVIN -- methuen, MA   10/23/2007
    First one doesn't seem to be working properly. Its still sensitive to my LCD. Smarthome is always quick to replace, though!
