The Vanco Super HDMI IR Kit offers you a simple, discrete way to remotely control a cable/satellite receiver, blu-ray player, DVD player, or other home theater source component that may be in another room or cabinet - using a Vanco HDMI cable
, sold separately. This Hidden IR Control System is made up of three components (which are also sold separately):
Each component features Vanco's Super HDMI IR Control capability allowing them to communicate with each other. 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 HDMI IR Control System is 1080p Full HD 3D Ready and will also work with sources, displays and other electronics connected via high speed HDMI cables. In a typical application, you will install an HDMI Adapter on each end of an HDMI cable connecting the source component and the display (HDTV, projector, monitor, etc.). The IR Transmitter is connected to the adapter located at the source component location while the IR Receiver is connected to the adapter at the display location. Then set the toggle switch on each adapter to 'IR', this allows IR commands to travel between the display and the source over the HDMI cable. This path can also be reversed to allow IR commands to travel between the source and the display, by reversing the transmitter and receiver positions on the HDMI cable. Thus upstream or downstream IR communications are possible.
