  • What's Included
  • Use your existing infrared remote to control components in another room. The Coax IR Starter Kit includes everything you need to send your IR signals to your devices over the coaxial cable delivering your television signal.

    The coax adapter is located near the TV, providing a connection for an IR receiver, and the coax engine is located near the A/V source, providing an IR emitter output. The included IR receiver takes the commands from your IR remote and injects them onto the coax cable. These commands are delivered to your A/V components via the included dual-head IR emitter, which can be affixed to the IR window of your DVD player, VCR, or cable box.

    Works well - BUT BE WARNED - this kit will NOT pass COMPOSITE video. The video must be RF. This is because the Coax Engine puts 12V DC on the coax to power the IR Receiver, so the input needs to be ac-coupled to pass unaffected. Works great with RF modulated signals.

    This product works great with no issues at all. The standard delivery was very quick and the setup was easy and fast.

    I purchased two of these so that I could relocate Verizon FiOS cable boxes to an A/V closet in the basement. The two TVs are located on the first floor; one is wall mounted and the other sits on a counter. In both cases, I did not want the cable boxes to clutter up the location where the TVs were located. This item was perfect for making it a clean install and relocating all of the other components in the A/V closet. You get the full functionality of the cable box without having to find a place for the cable box near the TV.

    The remote sensor is very small and is hardly noticed when mounted. I attached mine to the front endge of the TV and connected the sensor to the coax connection behind the TV. In my case, I have have a wall plate mounted behind the TV that has both HDMI and coax connections. Both the HDMI and the coax connections run back to the A/V closet. I'm only using the coax to connect the IR sensor, but I tested it with the TV signal going through the coax at the same time as the IR signal and I had no issues.

    This item works exactly as described and I would purchase another if neeeded in the future.

    Review of 83606

    I have been using the unit for 4 days. Very easy to install. I am using it with a Directv receiver. The Directv RF remotes are only good in the same room. I used to have a 17 year old Sony with RF remote and an external antenna and could tune with the receiver on different floors. This unit is used with a Radio Shack Stereo modulator to send the Video/Audio via coax. Works perfectly, picture is perfect. Picture does go snowy a little when the system sends the IR command, but that is my only issue, which is nothing.

    Had it for about a month. Works exactly as advertised. I can control my Verizon FiOS device from the remote location as though I'm in the same room as the device. All channels including the premium ones work perfectly.

    Review of 83606

    first one was defective and reduced signal quality on tvs. Second one worked well as advertised but was built backwards. I am suspect about quality control on product, but in the end it did a nice job allowing me to control my satellite feed/channel and control my stereo's outdoor zone from 200 feet away. Customer service from product company was prompt, within 24 hours, except they forgot to send me a return number, but in the end this didn't matter since I just returned it back to Smarthome when I realised it was defective

    Review of 83606

    works well - allows cable box to be put in a nearby closet and not on the counter -- did not do the install ourselves so cannot comment on how hard or easy that was - you need a very large drill bit to make holes large enough to get the cord/plug through the closet shelves to the electric outlet
