    Other Considerations

    Where is the IR Receiver going to be located? The IR Receiver must be 'line-of-sight' to the remote control being used to able to control the system audio video components. This location should be in a convenient spot in front of the user when seated in a typical location for watching TV or listening to music. This will in turn determine how the IR Receiver is going to be mounted.

    How is the IR Receiver going to be mounted? The IR Receiver can be surface mounted directly to the frame on the front of some flat panel TVs. For TVs that do not have a wide enough frame, the TV mount adapter can be used to extend the IR Receiver out from the back of the TV. If the IR Receiver is going to be mounted in a cabinet door, the flush mount adapter will mount the IR Receiver in an 11/16: hole in the cabinet door. If the IR Receiver is doing to be place on a shelf or on top of a cabinet the tabletop adapter provides an attractive low profile case for that application.

    Where are the AV components located? The IR Receiver , Emitters and Power Supply all wire into the Connecting Block. The Connecting Block should be in the same location as the AV components to be controlled. If the AV components are in a wall unit or cabinet in the same room and within a few feet of he IR Receiver, then once the IR Receiver has been mounted, find a convenient location that allows access to the Connecting Block for making connections and then simply connect the IR Receiver, Emitters and Power Supply. The IR Receiver has a total wire length of 6 feet 8 inches, and the emitters have a wire length of 10 feet, which is usually enough wire length to make connections in a typical cabinet or wall unit. If you need to go longer, use 3-conductor unshielded cable (sold separately) between the IR Terminal and the Connecting Block.

    A note about placement The IR Receiver should be located so that it is not directly facing a light source such as sunlight, lamps or video displays (CRT, LCD and Plasma). When mounted near a display it should be flush to the display and away from light reflections that may occur.
