    There is no description on the item as to what the intended use is for. I bought three of these thinking they were IR receivers for the monoprice branded IR kit. To my surprise, they did not work at all and appear to be a waste of money. Can you please tell me what the intended purpose is supposed to be please? Thank you

    BEST ANSWER: Hi Derek,
    Please let me know if you hear back about this.
    I have the same issue trying to use it with a Sewel Blaster. Wondering wheat it can be used for, seems like other users have success with Cable Boxes?
    How are the pins wired? Does it use 12 or 5V?
    A shopper on May 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: these are 3 wire IR units. 5 Vdc will need to be supplied (from the IR dongles they sell or the wall kits). Wires are +5Vdc, Signal, Gnd
    Will this work with a Sony Model # XBR-43X830C TV? There is an IR jack on the side, but the owner's manual is less than clear about whether I need to set up a serial control system along with the IR extender. Thanks for your help.
    A shopper on Nov 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. While the cable itself will function as described, we recommend contacting the manufacturer in regards to what extra setup/adjustment would be required for your specific television to function as desired if not clearly stated in the owners manual. I apologize for the inconvenience

    BEST ANSWER: I purchased this extender cable because the original receiver broke on my Dual Band IR Repeater. It doesn't seem to support the dual band required for most cable boxes, so it didn't work for me. I ended up buying a wireless extender instead.

    Can I use this with PID 8059 and a female to female coupler to extend an IR signal into an enclosed space?

    BEST ANSWER: The IR receiver needs a power source, and gives you unmodulated IR signal out (38khz carrier is gone). The IR transmitter also needs power, and the carrier frequency needs to be added back. There are little inexpensive boxes that have 3 or 4 receiver jacks, and 3 or 4 emitter jacks, and come with a wall wart adapter that do this, but strangely monoprice doesn't carry them. Google image search "Ir extender" - you should find many.
    My current remote control does not operate because the IR sensor does not work on the YAMAHA RX-V663 receiver. Will this IR extender cable provide a source as a second IR sensor so I can use my remote control? Any guidance on the use of this product will be greatly appreciated.

    Does not work
    Despite having the 3.5mm plug, and being an IR receiver, this does not work as a receiver with a standard 38kHz IR repeater device. I tried this on multiple IR repeaters from various brands, and it worked with none of them.

    PROS: None, does not function.

    Works great with my motorola cable receiver.
    It should come with a small piece of double sided tape to keep it from moving around.

    PROS: works great

    CONS: forces you to hunt for tape.

    DIY simple cheap repeater
    Combined with an 8059 emitter to make a cheap, self-contained 50-foot repeater system for a NightOwl security dvr. Cut up and splice in an old usb cable to get 5v from the dvr (Tip=5v, Ring=signal, Sleeve=gnd).

    PROS: 100% reliable so far from 15ft

    CONS: none

    Works with Motorola QIP7100-2
    Works perfect for IR remote extension through walls / entertainment units. I have confirmed that this unit functions 100% with the Motorola QIP7100-2, which is the Verizon FiOS HD (non-dvr) set top box shipping as of November 2012, as well as the QIP7100-1 HD set top box FiOS customers were issued through 2012.

    PROS: Great IR extender in a small package, and awesome price point in comparison with a lot of the competition.

    CONS: It would be nice if a 1/2" piece of double sided tape was included, being that (and this is just my assumption) 90% of all installations will be to the bottom or side of a flat-panel TV.

    Cisco compatable
    works with new cisco contour equipment like the hdc 4742, these units work fantastic.

    range is excellent, could not find anything to work, now I have 20 units for my clients.

    compatible to cisco 1004648 part . or cisco IRE5712 model

    PROS: Works with Cisco Contour DVR and contour client

    CONS: sticky tape a bit hard to work with

    I would recommend this product for others

    PROS: Exactly what I was looking for. It works great from 6-8 ft as the distance I have for my tv

    Fast shipping and very reasonable pricing

    CONS: small antenna is really tough to fit next to tv. I had to tape it over the tv to make it stand still

    Works with Time Warner/Cisco DTA
    I bought two of these to go with Cisco digital tuning adapters supplied by Time Warner. They work great. Both control dtas attached to LED TVs, one Samsung, one Visio. Great value, prompt delivery.

    PROS: good value

    well made

    CONS: two sided mounting tape not effective

    Very happy with this IR extender
    It was surprisingly difficult to find an IR extender that didn't require an in-line power source. I had purchased one from a Monoprice competitor only to find that it didn't work with a HDMI switch I am using in a office conference room environment. This IR extender saved the day and works, as advertised, without any +12V in-line power required.

    Works great with my TWC boxes
    Work as advertised with TWC Arris DCX-3600-m and 3200-m boxes.

    PROS: Easy to install. Literally Plug and Play

    CONS: No adhesive stickers with these. Had to use my own tape to stick them to the television.
