Essential Info

The Vanco 280741 IR Receiver is a Mini Surface-Mount style infrared receiver for use with a home theater IR repeater system. Typically, this compact IR receiver is used in an installation where having the receiver mounted on a the to of a table or on the side or underneath a cabinet is of utmost importance. The IR receiver takes in a signal from your remote control, passes it through to a connecting block and out to emitters - allowing you to remotely control your AV components behind cabinet doors or in a closet. You can also use the receiver to replace an existing receiver in your home theater IR repeater system. The IR receiver is equipped with a 10-foot cable and a 3.5-millimeter stereo mini plug, which plugs directly into the IR connecting block. This version of the IR receiver is CFL proof, so you can install it anywhere in a room with CFL lighting.

Note: IR Connecting Block and IR Emitters sold separately.

    Hooked up to my CE Labs HD over CAT5 setup, replacing an old non-CFL receiver (tabletop Xantech), and nothing... dead! Hooked up the old Xantech and it works again. Returning
