Wireless Dual Band IR Remote Control Extender up to 328ft
So you've got your stereo system speakers installed on your back porch and you can enjoy your music, but you can't change the volume without running back into the house and physically adjusting the volume control on your receiver, and you don't want to install a wall-plate volume control. What can you do? Why get this IR Remote Control Extender from Monoprice, of course!
This wireless IR extender converts the IR signal into an RF signal at 433.92 MHz, for transmission to the receiver unit, up to 100 meters away, through walls, doors, ceilings, and floors, or whatever. At the receiving end, an IR cable with three bulbs repeats the IR signal from your remote to up to three individual components, so you can use it up for your receiver, DVD player, and satellite receiver, for example. The extender operates in the IR range from 30 ~ 60 KHz, allowing it to process the newer Dual Band IR signals.
Note that the IR transmitter bulb cord connects to the receiver with a 2.5mm "mono" plug and has cord lengths of 39", 58", and 78". If you wish to extend this to a longer distance, you can use our 3 ft 2.5mm audio extension cable. However, if you need to extend it further, you can use a 3.5mm stereo audio extension cable. With the 3.5mm cable you will also need a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter at one end and a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter at the other end.

Unfortunately, I had to return mine because the RF receiver, IR sender could not reach the target device.
PROS: Wireless, easy to set up and anyone can follow the directions. Works with dual band cable boxes (Time Warner HDC8300).
Does not pick up every command
The repeater works on every other piece of equipment, but not the FIOS box. I've tried multiple remotes, still no go.
PROS: Great except no FIOS support
CONS: Doesn't seem to be compatible with my moto Verizon FIOS DVR.
PROS: Works as described.
CONS: None yet.
PROS: Easy to use and it works
Some things to keep in mind:
1. Extend the antennas on each unit (easy to forget to do)
2. On the IR transmitter side, keep in mind that each device has a certain field of operation (typically +/- 15º up/down/left/right from IR sensor).
3. Also remember that each device has a min. operating distance on the IR and not just a max range. I would say at least 12" - closer was unreliable.
PROS: Works as advertised
PROS: Plugged in both units, it worked. Couldn't be easier.
PROS: low cost
CONS: Seems to duplicate commands. If you press 411 you may get 4111.
PROS: Works with all my other devices from my the other side of the apartment, no problem.
CONS: Did not work with my Motorola DVR.
