The Vanco 280732 CFL Resistant 1×2 IR Repeater Kit is a great way to control your home theater components that are located inside of a media cabinet or in an AV equipment closet. Most AV components are controlled via an infrared (IR) remote control that requires a line of site to work between the remote control and the component(s). So components located behind closed doors can’t be controlled unless the doors are open, which defeats the purpose. An IR repeater kit solves this problem. The mini surface-mount IR receiver is the only item that needs to be visible. It receives IR commands from your remote, passes it through the connecting block and distributes the signals out through the IR emitters. This system allows you to keep a cable or satellite TV receiver, stereo receiver or amplifier, CD player, DVD player, Blu-ray player, or virtually any component controlled by an IR signal behind closed doors so you can use your remote control like normal.
A Cmple Small or Premium Hidden IR Repeater Kit (each sold separately) will allow you to control your Audio Video (AV) equipment located behind closed doors of a cabinet or closet, in a rack mount system or in another room using your existing IR remote control(s). However some cable and satellite receiver boxes, such as SA HDTV DVR’s and DirectTV H21, operate on higher frequency that may not be compatible with the IR receiver include with the Small and Premium IR Kits. In a typical IR Repeater Kit setup, an IR signal is sent from your remote control, to a an IR Receiver, which passes the IR signal through a connecting block and out to the emitters. The Cmple 1178-N Dual Frequency IR Receiver has been designed to replace the standard IR receiver and allow for the passing of that high frequency signal.
