Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

The product was very easy to setup.
B. Giles
The IR receiver is very sensitive and is able to pick up the signals from the remote even if we point the remote 90 degrees away from the receiver.
C. Bynum
The emitters come with self stick adhesive making it simple to attach right to the IR sensors of the devices.

To all:
Thank you for your interest in this feedback forum for Hot Link Pro.
Following are some answers to the problems, questions, and suggestions that have appeared on this forum.

We make every effort to make certain clients can contact us with support questions. The web site and phone number are molded into the bottom of every unit. In the case of this forum we have yet to make contact with those who have had less than a stellar experience with Hot Link Pro.

Hiding the Eye:
We intend no holes to be drilled for the Eye to see through. There is a Velcro Kit and a screw tab for mounting the eye. This screw is meant for non-visible, internal surfaces, not the outside of a cabinet.
Hot Link Pro does not work "hidden behind a cabinet door", it works great behind a cabinet door "slot". It also works on the back of flat panel displays, behind speaker grills and cabinets. It does not need direct line of site. The Blue LED is separate from the Eye so that the Eye may be hidden while the LED may be mounted in a visible location.

Compatibility:
Hot Link Pro is the most compatible IR repeater available. Works with all IR remote controlled DVRs, Sat Boxes, DVD players, CD players, Xbox, etc. It works with all the new 58Khz carrier based gear like Scientific Atlanta 8300, the new AT and T VIP1200, Hughes, Motorola, HR20, etc. It even extends IR Keyboards and mice.
Only a few devices that use 455Khz carriers will not work. Some Kenwood high-end receivers and a couple of Sony high-end "ES" receivers. And a few older pioneer Elite Receivers.
Many professional installers prefer Hot Link Pro to multi-piece systems because it is broad band, works better with flat panel displays and does not need to be visible like other IR repeaters.

This device allows you to extend the range of your remote controls and stick all those ugly components in a closet or basement. There is a little receiver that sends the infrared signal from the remote to wires that are connected to your equipment in a cabinet or other remote location.

I bought this so I could put a satellite box, vhs and dvd player in a cabinet, out of sight in the bedroom. The IR receiver is quite sensitive and the whole system worked like a charm with very little setup time. A lot of A/V pros swear by this system.

NOTE, many plasmas/LCD's emit a lot of IR (infrared radiation) which can interfere with the functioning of the typical IR extender. However, this device seems to be designed with this in mind and apparently works well with virtually all plasmas/lcd's.

To be safe, you may want to actually call the manufacturer to check as to whether the device will work with your particular tv set. As others have noted in their reviews, when I called the manufacturer, I was shocked to find that you can easily get ahold of the inventor. He expressed a rare enthusiasm for his business and his customers and was willing to answer lots of questions about his products. (Quite a surprise for those of us used to computerized voicemail "help" systems or the typical overseas tech support.)

The comment in one of the reviews regarding the short cable between the eye and the box is a fair one. I believe there is another cable that you can buy to fix that although the accessories do run on the slightly more expensive side. Microsmith may also have a new model coming out (fall 06) that addresses this issue.

Note there are a lot of variables governing how well your IR extender system will work--including the kind of equipment you have and how reflective your room surfaces are. So while this is a great product, you may still have to do some fiddling to get it to work out.

Verified Purchase
I have no idea what other people are complaining about. This is idiot proof. The cords were plenty long. Customer service A+. The unit is so sensitive that you almost have to put it behind a speaker grill to cut out IR noise. What more do you want. Measure your runs before you order and if neccessary order some extensions.

I bought this to be able to put a TV in our kitchen, but we only had space to put the cable box in the bedroom upstairs. Our electrician snaked the emitter wire through the floor/ceiling, and we turned everything on. We tried using the remote in the kitchen to control the cable box in the bedroom - nothing. So I called Microsmith, the manufacturer, and asked to speak to technical support.

Within a few minutes Marcus called me back, though it was late on a Friday afternoon. He instantly diagnosed the problem - the location of the IR eye on certain Motorola cable boxes. He gave me his direct line to reach him if we had any more trouble.

We did. It still wouldn't work. I emailed him on that Friday evening. He called me back on Saturday morning, and diagnosed the second problem - that our electrician had cut off an emitter while installing, breaking the circuit. He told me how to fix it, and asked that I let him know how it went.

I implemented his simple fix, and hey presto, it works. And it works perfectly, and precisely as the marketing material says it will. The receiver in the kitchen is totally invisible, and the cable box responds every time. It looks and works great.

That the product does what it says on the box is not so remarkable, but to come across a company that truly cares about getting its product to work for its customers really is remarkable these days.

If you need to control electronic equipment from a few feet away or behind cabinet doors, BUY THIS DEVICE. You'll most likely install it in 10 minutes flat and have it work perfectly first time. But you have the certainty that, if something goes wrong, they'll be there to help in every possible way.
