  • The Hidden Link IR Receiver is a small shelf-top infrared repeater assembly. It includes an IR receiver and a CB12 Connecting Block. The Hidden Link IR Receiver is equipped with a 7-foot cable and a 3.5mm stereo mini plug, which is plugged directly into the "IR RCVR" jack on the CB12. It can also be plugged into the "AUX" or "IR RCVR" jack of other Xantech connecting blocks, such as the models 789-44, CB60, and 791-44. The Hidden Link IR Receiver is primarily intended for use in installations where the connecting block is within reach of its 7-foot cable - as when installing the Hidden Link IR Receiver in a cabinet where the controlled equipment is behind closed doors.

    Please note: Power supply, and emitters are sold separately - or they can all be purchased together with this receiver and connecting block as a Designer Hidden Link IR Receiver Kit.

    Works perfectly. The only thing I'm not happy with is that this receiver doesn't "talk back" when it receives an IR signal.

    Finally! An IR receiver that is completely unaffected by my Sony LCD TV with fluorescent back lighting. Works very well, sensitive and immune to LCD TV interference. A little pricey, though.

    Works perfect! As advertised. Plus a good upgrade from the older models, it doesn't get IR interferance like those.

    they were bought to replace 1st generation (coax xtra-link) that didn't perform well with new plasma's
    Excellent performance & I didn't need to replace power supply, injectors & coupler's.

    Product was plug and play and functions excellently as expected from prior experience with this manufacturer.

    I put (2) LCD TV's in different rooms on one HD Digital cable box using the Smart Home components, Everything works great. Hint: use 75ohm cable on the RCA outputs of the digital cable box to go to the 2nd LCD tv. Picture and sound will be great. Get RCA/75 ohm adapters and you are good to go. I use a 2 to 1 splitter cord for the L/R sound so I only ran (1) 75 ohm for sound and (1) 75ohm for video. I used (4) conductor phone cords and connectors to link the controls. You will be amazed!

    Works as advertised. I have it located below my 60" LCD TV & have experienced no IR signal

    Since this was a replacement for any earlier version (HR10), instalation was a breeze. Thuis unit does everything it claimed to do. And best of all, it ended all the compaints about the lack of control respponse I was getting from my husband. As far a value, I did cost more than I expected but I did solve my problem...
