    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
    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".

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

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

    Worked perfectly!
    Simple and very functional solution which allowed me to put my cable box in a cabinet out of sight.

    PROS: Simple solution that works as advertised. small and compact

    CONS: mounting is a bit of a pain. the tape that came with it was not sticky enough to hold up the receiver.

    Excellent product and value
    Great product and great value. Highly recommended.

    PROS: Easy to install. Sensor accepts signals from a wide variety of angles. Works in all kinds of lighting. Controls all your devices with no additional wiring., Works better than the "brand N" IR system with individual flashers, extra wiring requirement, and less signal sensitivity. I've replaced two of those $150 installations with these superior ones at one sixth the price. .

    CONS: The HDMI fittings are fragile and easily broken. Plus they require some extra clearance behind the TV which could be an issue if TV is against the wall. Swivel HDMI adaptors worked for me.

    So Far So Good
    I installed all of my components in a closet and ran a 50ft HDMI cable (Mediabridge - Amazon (Sorry Monoprice)) under the floor in the basement. I used two Monoprice HDMI wall plates (7330). One in the closet and the other behind the TV. This setup is working great so far.

    My setup consists of a Harmony Remote controlling all of my components: Comcast Cisco cable box, Sony blu-ray player, Xbox 360, all connected through an Onkyo receiver to a Samsung Plasma.

    The only problem I had was that the IR transmitter/receiver needs power to operate. I thought that setting my Harmony remote to make my TV to turn on first and then delay a little before turning on the rest of the components would work. It did not. I was able to solve this problem though. All I had to do was turn the HDMI pass-through functionality on my Onkyo receiver. Now everything works flawlessly.

    PROS: Works on over 50ft of HDMI cable

    Seems to do a decent job of picking up IR signals

    Great price

    CONS: Requires power from devices

    Aesthetically, not the best. Mostly out of sight though

    A world of difference
    I just want to say that this works great. I have been using the wireless transmitter from Monoprice for a couple of years now and one problem they had was the limited range of the reciever. It was really annoying because the range was about 2 feet shorter than the distance from my couch and you had to stretch to get it to change channels. The over HDMI cable unit is perfect because if I can see the reciever the remote will work. Another plus is that the reciever is so small you almost can't see it compared to the mouse sized wireless unit that my children were always moving around. The only down fall to this setup is the size of the connector, I had to swap the cable and blueray connections, not a big deal, but I could see how if you didn't have the room around the ports it could be a problem. Back ground on the installation is I have the cable box and the blueray in a closet with 25ft hdmi cables running throught the walls, so now the only thing that is visible is the TV.

    PROS: Works Great

    CONS: Connector size

    Stay away
    Item did not work out of the box. Was trying to control my Yamaha receiver over a 10 foot run of HDMI. Signal was passed through fine but the IR signal was not. Everything was setup correctly. Stay far away.

    PROS: None. Did not work

    CONS: Did not work out of the box.

    Perfect solution!
    This was a great purchase! Not only does it come with a perfect length of cable but it work fantastic for any device! Using this device I was able to keep my wall mount very clean in appearance and it allows me to keep all the components in the back corner of the room! No fuss no mess.

    PROS: Small, Afordable and works great over high end HDMI cables

    CONS: A better mounting pad is needed as the one that came with it was not great and was quickly replaced with a high end piece of double-sided tape. A 90 degree version would also help with behind TV mounting.
