  • What's Included
  • With the Xantech DL85 Plasma/LCD/LED/CFL Proof Designer Dinky Link IR Receiver, there is no longer a need to leave entertainment cabinet doors open to use your IR remote control. The receiver works with a Xantech Connecting Block, IR Emitters, and a 12V DC Power Supply (each sold separately) to create a system allowing you to control audio and video components behind solid doors or walls using your existing IR remote. This version of the Dinky Link is Plasma/LCD/LED/CFL proof, so you can install it anywhere in a room with a Plasma/LCD/LED display and/or CFL lighting; it is even sunlight resistant. It mounts to almost any surface using the included double-sided foam tape. The Dinky Link's small size helps hide it among your AV components or behind a speaker grill. Up to four can be connected in series. The receiver, connecting block, power supply, and emitters leave you with an aesthetically appealing entertainment center without an unsightly stack of equipment and cables. Since your entertainment center is free of clutter, you can still use your existing IR Remote from up to 30 feet away, even if you're A/V equipment is behind doors and walls.

    The DL85 Dinky Link IR Receiver is also available as part of an IR Repeater Kit that includes everything needed to get started.

    I have an existing IR system and needed 2 of these for additional TV's. One is plasma the other is LCD. Both work great without any interference. I just clipped the plug off the end and wired the Dinky Link directly to the existing Cat 5 following the included instructions. These also come with 3 interchangeable face plates to match the color of your TV: gray, black, or white. Four stars for the price but comparable to other sites.

    This works much better than previous plasma resistant receivers that I have tried from same manufacturer.

    Works well, though highly overpriced for what it is. The wiring is great if you want to plug it in but if you need to cut the connector and wire to a block the wiring is very small gauge and difficult to handle.

    It works, but I had to put it behind my LCD TV and place it sideways. Otherwise, the "receive" LED on the Xantech stays on and remote control won't work.

    I purchased this and the 10 Emitter kit. I wired the eye in with ethernet (because I had some extra in the wall already)and it works great. I was using powermids and other 'repeaters'/'blasters' - this solved the problems of smoked glass and distance.

    Works as advertised, but way over priced. Xantech has you over a barrel as you definitely need this receiver to make the IR system work with a plasma or LCD TV, and there isn't an alternative. Shame on Xantech for price gouging!

    Works well with my LCD televisions. Yes, you really do need these special receivers if you have an LCD, LED, etc. television.

    And, yes, the cost is bordering on criminal. Since your options are limited price gouging is the name of the game. I feel your pain. I really do.
