I use a projector, so I cannot speak to how well it passes audio through. I have also not tried the IR pass-through.
There are a couple of downsides. The boxes run pretty hot, even staying warm when on but not in use. Each box has its own power switch. I have mounted the boxes in locations not convenient for turning on and off (switch only, no IR) and it bugs me that the standby state runs warm, sucking down electricity 24/7. Also, AR/Audiovox customer service is lacking, as they were no help with seeking stand screws that were supposed to be included, but were left out of the box. Their response: "Our apologies but we don't carry parts as we only do basic troubleshooting and in-warranty exchanges for the whole unit. But you can visit our major dealers that carry our line of products....and check if they have the part you're looking for. Also check other electronic shops/stores within your area that carry suitable replacement parts that may fit your unit."
Otherwise the devices are very simple...plug and play. HDMI connections for both the transmitter and receiver. Also, the IR remote transmitter works great too, and the receiving unit has a nice front IR receiver so the extender is only necessary if you want to hide the black box.
I am not an "audiophile" looking for some extreme quality. I didn't even get that far. I connected this to my DirecTV HD DVR and it could barely navigate the menus because of the slow response time of the remote and even the menus were noticeably low in quality.
I never actually saw any sort of video on through the unit, let alone a full HD picture as it was too slow to render those.
I eventually tried connecting both sides to the same outlet to see if it was my house wiring (I have a fairly new house) and that did not help.
No reputable retailer should carry this product.
Not worth even $25 I spend on it as part of combo with HP usb stick.
Do not recommend to buy at all.
There are some conditions:
First, you must have both the TV and the device in the same room.
Second, it only transmits HD signal, progressive scan (from 480p to 1080p). No interlace.
Third, make sure that you connect the receiver and transmitter in a stand alone outlet (no surge protector or extensions)
My use is to connect my HD laptop to a HD TV via HDMI. I usually watch video streaming from international soccer and I had to always move my laptop (which is at the other side of the room)closer to the TV in order to connect it to the TV via HDMI.
The receiver and transmitter gets very warm. But both are with a on/off switch. After use, I power them off.
Using this tool I don't need to move my laptop anymore.
It is working so far.. just one day of use. Will see how long it last.
By the way, delivery was very fast.

The system does not work. I bought this system because I am a long time fan of AR products. I loved their warm sounding stereo speakers. Read morePublished on February 18, 2013 by Elke

The most I got was a still picture & static laden audio. A total disappointment. Even at 90% off, it's a waste of money.Published on January 20, 2013 by Kyle G. Pearson
The only good thing about this product was the free return shipping. It wouldnt transmit a signal 40 ft unobstructed, and when they were 3 ft apart the picture was awful! Read morePublished on July 31, 2012 by DJ
