    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 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".

    Most reliable IR repeater I've ever installed

    Pros: Very inexpensive, easy to install, small footprint

    Cons: They're out of stock! Other than that, they're excellent

    I'm an electrical contractor and I've installed over 100 of these. Out of the 100 I think we may have had an issue with 2. For the price and ease of installation, these are by far the best IR repeaters available.

    Extended over 50' HDMI!

    • Chris,

    Pros: Worked over very long HDMI run

    Cons: None

    I was worried because this was going to be used with a passive 50' HDMI cable. I was very pleased that it worked flawlessly.

    Sort Of Works

    This system works, but not 100% reliably. It needs power at both ends to work. Well, you don't have power at your receiver end until you turn the receiver on. So, basically, you would have to leave your receiver on all the time. I end up turning my receiver on manually, and then this does the job for the rest of the equipment. It's still not 100% reliable at sending a signal that works. It's not very sensitive at receiving the signal, either. It is fairly reliable at turning the equipment off.
