    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.

    Works great and easy install!

    Pros: Good price
    Easy install
    Great range

    Cons: Size of adapter makes it necessary to get a 90/270 degree angle HDMI adapter to get it to fit in tight spaces.

    I relocated all of my components into a closet in the house to make the living room look much cleaner and sleeker. I tested this before doing all the work and it worked great. Once I ran everything, it was super easy to get setup. Literally just plug in the adapters on both ends and make sure it's all pointing correctly and it was good. I ran it with a 50' HDMI cable through my attic. No problems at all!

    Only drawback I saw with this setup was the increase in length with the adapter. I needed a couple 90/270 degree angle HDMI adapters to get everything to fit where it belonged. Not the end of the world, but would have been smart to make these that way by default considering it is probably a common thing since you're trying to hide everthing

    Hello Jose,

    Thank you for your review and sorry to hear of the issues you experienced with PID 9964. If I may ask, if you try connecting it to a different device do the same issues occur? Also, if you try re-positioning the IR cable at the cable box is it any better?

    Pros: Apparently simple, with Little need to rewire.

    Cons: Doesn't work

    I had it working for about an hour, then it stopped. Tried every configuration, and simply cannot get this thing to work...wast of money - and time!

    Thank you for your review on PID 9964. If I may ask, can you explain a bit further the troubleshooting steps already tried? If you haven't done so already, can we test the extender with another device (BluRay player, DVD player, cable box, etc.)? What about with a different HDMI cable? Please let me know along with your order number so we can best assist you in resolving this matter. My apologies for the trouble and thank you in advance.

    Finally, an IR Extender that works with Dish Network Hopper!

    Pros: Transmits the Dish Network IR signal.

    I have an A/V system in my house that centralizes all of the video/audio devices and distributes the signal via a HDMI Matrix to all of the TV's in the house. Along with this, I have a a multi-zone IR system. My longest run is 75 feet.

    The IR in Dish Network devices uses the higher end of the IR frequency spectrum. Most IR repeaters do a fine job of transmitting most IR signals, but I've tried many systems and none of them would reliably transmit the Dish Network IR signal until now. This device actually work and now I have control of my Dish Network boxes using my universal remotes via IR.
