Essential Info

The Vanco 280703 HDMI Adapter with IR is part of the Vanco Super IR HDMI Control System. All Vanco components having the Super IR HDMI Control capability will communicate with each other. The Super IR HDMI Control components include this adapter, an IR Transmitter / Sender / Emitter and an IR Receiver; each sold individually and separately. The patented HDMI IR Adapter allows the IR control channel to extend to a display, since this adapter is inserted between the display and the HDMI cable connecting to the display.

The Super IR HDMI Control System is 1080p Full HD 3D Ready and will also work with sources, displays and other electronics connected via an high speed HDMI cables. For example, an HDMI Adapter may be installed on both ends of an HDMI cable (an additional adapter is required) connecting the source and the display. An IR Transmitter and an IR Receiver are then connected respectively to the adapters with the toggle switch set to 'IR'. This allows IR commands to travel between the display and the source. This path can also be reversed to allow IR commands to travel between the source and the display, by reversing transmitter and receiver positions on the HDMI cable. Thus upstream or downstream IR communications are possible.

This product is also available as part of a kit that includes:
2x - HDMI Adapters with IR
1x - IR Transmitter / Sender / Emitter Pigtail with 1.5 Meter Cable
1x - IR Receiver Pigtail with 1.5 Meter Cable

    Installation Tips
    Connect the Super IR Sender to the HDMI Matrix Selector Switch, HDMI Splitter or HDMI Extender. Install the HDMI IR Adapter between the HD TV HDMI input and the HDMI cable that is normally connected there. Attach the IR Receiver to the HDMI Adapter and move the toggle switch to the 'IR' position. Position the IR Sender (labeled TX) to point at the IR receiver on the source. Position the IR Receiver pointed outward from the HD TV display, so that an IR remote can be used to control the source. You can use an IR remote that comes with the Vanco active electronics to control that device and a universal IR control for the source. This depends on the control that you want to exercise and the control capabilities of the devices in your system. Some of the larger Vanco HDMI devices may also be controlled via the RS-232 control protocol.
