  • The Xantech ML85 Plasma/LCD/LED/CFL Proof Designer Micro Link IR Receiver is a small peep-hole style infrared repeater assembly. The Micro Link IR receiver is equipped with a 7-foot cable and a 3.5-millimeter stereo mini plug, which is plugged directly into the IR RCVR jack on the connecting block, such as the models 789-44, CB60, and 791-44. The Micro 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 Micro Link IR receiver in a cabinet where the controlled equipment is behind closed doors. This version of the Micro Link receiver 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 resistant to sunlight.

    Please note: Connecting block, power supply, and emitters are sold separately - or they can all be purchased together as a kit.

    This was an easy to install replacement for the IR sensor that we had before. It completely fixed the interference problem with our remote that appeared when we replaced our old CRT TV with a new LCD model. Now the system correctly recognizes the signals with only one click of the remote.

    Review of 81223

    I orignally had a ML25 Receiver which I purchased several years ago for use with a projection TV. When I switched to a LCD TV the IR interference was horrendous.

    I purchased the ML85 as the replacement and I now have no issues with IR interference.

    Is not LCD proof, it would not work with my LCD TV! Spoke to Xantech about the problem and they had no solution. Ended up returning product.

    Review of 81223

    I used to have an old TV that worked perfectly with a Xantech IR receiver, but my flatscreen didn't (signal overload).I bought this item because it's supposed to be LCD proof. Unfortunately it isn't. It simply doesn't work (still overloads) and it's a waste of my money.
