  • Sends TV Signals and IR Control Signals Over One Coax Cable!
    The Xtra Link2 system provides full remote control operation of a satellite receiver, cable box or VCR from a second room by sharing the coaxial cable connecting your video equipment to this second room's TV. Place the IR Receiver on top of the remote room TV. The IR Injector supplies TV signals to the television and "injects" the IR commands into the coax cable. The Xtra Link system uses the coax cable that carries the TV RF signal from the source equipment in the main room to the remote room, to send the IR control signals back to the source equipment. The coaxial cable may be up to one mile in length.

    Need to hook up a third room?
    Use the Xtra Links2 Xpansion Kit. It includes all the parts you need to successfully watch and control a video device from a third room. Specifically, the kit includes an infrared receiver, a INJ94 injector, DC power supply, and two short coax jumper cables with RF connectors. Like all the TVs connected to the Xtra Link2 system, the expansion room will also have to view the same program as the first two TVs.

    Add the Bypass Kit when you don't have a straight-through coax between the Iinjector and the Coupler. The By-Pass Kit will be needed if a spiltter or amplifier is in line.

    The first unit came and it didn't work. I recieved the TV picture but was unable to change the direct TV channels. Smarthome did a great job replacing unit. The second unit worked for two weeks and it failed.

    This is a wonderful product and the perfect solution to replace a barely functional solution I had been struggling with until I discovered this. Extremely easy to install. I am already thinking about purchasing another to extend IR control to another room in my house to which video programming is streamed from the central location.

    Good overall product, however, out of 4 kits I had to exchange 3 because the IR recievers went out after a few days.

    This kit works better than I thought it would right out of the box. The hardest part of the whole job for me was running 75 ohmn cable between the (3) TV's I use with the cable box. If you want cable on all your conventional TV's(no LCD/Plasma) with just (1) cable box this is what you need to buy.

    I wish the kit would have better specified that it is not compatible with LCD Tv's. I sourced the appropriate kit elsewhere to save money, since I needed a dl85.

    Worked fine for 2 minutes. The power light on the IR receiver gets very dim and does not appear to be working correctly. The item works sporadically and will be returned. I had high hopes for this item, but have been very left down.
