    IR Extender Over HDMI

    So you've got your HDMI splitter sending your video signal to the den so you can watch the game in peace. But the cable box is in the other room and you can't channel surf between the various games? It sounds like you need this IR Extender Over HDMI from Monoprice!

    Most other IR extenders are either wireless, which can cause interference issues with other wireless equipment, or hard wired, meaning you need to run another cable through your walls. This extender is completely different in that it uses your existing HDMI cable to carry the IR signal from one room to the other.

    The kit consists of two small HDMI modules that fit on each end of your existing HDMI cable. Each module has a 3.5mm jack into which you plug the IR receiver or transmitter module. The receiver module accepts the IR signal from your remote control, while the transmitter module regenerates the IR signal and beams it at the IR sensor of your cable box or other piece of equipment.

    This IR extender supports IR signals from 30~60KHz, which means that it works with "dual band" IR devices. The receiver module has a 48" cable and the transmitter module has a 56" cable. The kit comes with two pieces of double-sided adhesive tape so you can fix the transmitter and receiver modules into place.

    Note that to transmit the IR signal over the HDMI cable, the switches on both modules must be set to the "IR" position. If both switches are set to the "CEC" position, the cable will pass CEC signals instead of IR signals, which HDMI cables do by default, so the "CEC" position is in effect the "OFF" position. If one switch is set to "CEC" and the other to "IR", neither CEC nor IR signals will be passed, so ensure both switches are set the same.

    Pros: Easy install
    No external power needed
    Good low profile

    Cons: 3mm jack blocks access to next HDMI slot
    Needs 3mm jack 90 degree elbow

    Ordered this to go from Optimum Cable Box in living room, to backside of wall to bedroom 65" Samsung. Super simple install was done in 30 seconds. But tv picture kept flickering every 10-15 seconds. Very disappointed and returned it to Monoprice. Cust serv was VERY helpful and said it should work with my system and to try a new HDMI cable. I did and it still didn't work and I returned it. Monoprice tested it on return and found it to be defective. They shipped me a replacement part same day!!! Received it today and BAM!! Works perfectly! THANK YOU ROB !!!

    Worked for about a month

    Worked great for about a month. Then it would not work probably when watching DVR's shows. would rewind if I hit fast forward or mute the show if I hit fast forward. I could not turn off the mute and would have to turn the TV off completely, Now it does not work at all except to turn the tv on and off.
    Waste of money.

    Works in theory, but with some big limitations

    • Anonymous,

    Pros: Cheap
    Basically works, basically

    Cons: Feels cheap
    Blocks nearby ports and cables
    Interferes with ARC functionality

    First, this product does function with its essential features, so it's hard to knock it too much. In simple set ups, this works great at piggybacking the IR signal onto an existing HDMI cable to where your AV setup is hidden. It's relatively cheap, gives no perceptible lag and was reliable for at least a couple weeks.

    However, there are some important real-world limitations. The location of the IR transmitter/receiver jack could not have been in a worse place. It sticks out at a right angle near the HDMI plug, so it blocks neighboring cables or plugs on your TV and source devices. This essentially reduces the number of HDMI inputs/outputs, and may not even work in some setups if the device case gets in the way. A right angle jack also complicates cable management.

    Also, this device interferes with the audio return channel (ARC) signal coming from my LG TV. This might be because both this and the TV are trying to add a signal to the HDMI return. If you are trying to hide your AV rack and using ARC to send audio from your TV, you might have a bad day with this device.

    Works well when installed correctly

    Pros: Great product at a good price. Shipped quickly.

    Cons: It doesn't improve the quality of the TV content.

    Lost another pair of Monospace HDMI over CAT6 devices due to lightening. It's Florida, it happens. The devices I lost had built in IR back channel. I had other sets without this feature in my inventory so I purchased this product to supplement those.
    At first I thought they were defective or non compatible with HDMI over CAT6 devices. I realized that I had not installed them properly. The temptation is to place these at the wall plate side of the HDMI cable. WRONG. Be sure to install them at the device facing end of the HDMI cable. I know, "duh".
