  • What's Included
  • Send remote control signals to your satellite dish, cable box, or VCR using a standard IR remote, even if the component you wish to control is located in another room. The Xantech RF/IR Coupler works with the RF/IR Injector (sold separately) to deliver your IR signals over your coaxial cable, regardless of the distance to the actual component. Simply attach any Xantech IR Receiver with a 3.5mm stereo mini plug to the RF/IR Injector, which attaches to your coax cable between the satellite or cable input and the television you'll be watching. The RF/IR Coupler extracts the IR commands on the other end and delivers them to the satellite dish or other components via a stick-on IR emitter. The IR Receiver, IR Signal Coax Cable Splitter/Injector, and IR emitters are sold separately, as is a 12-Volt Regulated Power Supply, which is required to power the RF/IR Injector.

    How it Works
    Located in the equipment area, the IR Signal Coax Cable Splitter/Injector extracts the remote control signal from the coaxial cable and passes it to the emitters that control the source equipment. Two 3.5mm mono mini emitter jacks with 470-Ohm resistors drive two single or dual IR emitters, for control of up to four components.

    Additional Expansion Options
    If you'll be configuring multiple rooms, be sure the RF splitters used are DC passing types. Be sure to install a DC IR Signal Block on the cable line of any television set in a room without an IR receiver to prevent the IR control signal from shorting out. If you encounter interference from direct or reflected sunlight, a sunscreen filter can be installed. Select the filter that will work best for your Dinky Link or Micro Link IR receiver.

    Using this with the 81280 Xantech RF/IR Injector works like a champ and compared to the other solutions I was looking at it was a real bargain too.
