    Works very well though the sticky adhesive on one of my leads tends to not hold very well. Overall, very pleased with this product.

    The DL85K was recommended by the great advisors at Smarthome, once I described my requirements. It was so much better than the previous system I had (not from Smarthome). I'm using it to control a cable box in a separate room from the TV with a CAT5 cable link and an 1/8" stereo jack to interface the cable to the IR receiver, works perfectly, great product!

    Excellent product - the first repeater I purchased would not work with my cable box. This one worked like a charm. Easy to install and setup.

    IR system works with uVerse. Only issue I had was with my Samsung 3d LED TV and placement of the IR receiver. The TV intefered with the IR receiver which caused it blink the red response light rapidly. Easy fix is to either place the IR receiver away from the TV, or place on TV and put black tape of the red light. Otherwise, it is a great investment, and my media room presentation looks very clean.

    What a great solution this was for my problem. Wanted my Plasma TV hanging on the wall without anything else in view. The DL85K IR Kit made this possible by allowing me to store the STB and all of its cables behind the wall hidden from site and allowed me to use the STB remote for channel tuning and sound. I installed it and had it working in less than 15 minutes. Highly recommend it.

    Review of 81221K

    This device works great with my uVerse, Yamaha AVR, and Samsung Bluray player. Unfortunately, when placing the IR receiver on my Samsung 3D LED TV panel, the IR Status led light flashes rapidly. The unit is still able to control my hidden components, but the rapid flash puzzles me. I emailed Xantech support and they indicated it was interference from the TV, and it definitely was. I just left the IR receiver on the TV and put a piece of electrical black tape over the IR status led so it wouldn't disturb me.

    Bought it because it was highly recommended that it works with AT&T uVerse boxes, which it does! Been pleased with it so far.
