5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, January 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: C2G / Cables to Go 40430 Impact Acoustics Infrared Remote Control Repeater Kit Black (Electronics)
This product works GREAT and is very inexpensive compared to others. I recommend using this product over wireless repeaters for reliability and cleanliness of installation.
PROS: Very neat installation and very accurate repeater for a complete system using a Sony 52 inch LCD. Ample wires and expansion capability. Feels like a well built product with clear labeling on the box for easy installation. I added a standard 12 foot long 3.5mm M/F stereo extension cable to lengthen the 10 foot IR Receiver cable that was included in the kit. This allowed me to put the IR receiver on the TV (wall mounted Sony) and put the box in the equipment closet 12 feet away. It worked flawlessly. They should advertise this capability on the Cables to Go website.

CONS: The double back tape on the IR Transmitters seemed kinda week. I don't think they'll fall off over time, but actually might. The IR transmitter plugs pop out of the box very easily. I think they are using the wrong plug/socket combination in the design; they work, but come out VERY easily when they should 'click' in like the IR receiver and power plug do. The power cord is the same plug as all the other ports. It is easily confused with the port next to it labeled "Status". The unit will not work if the power is in the "Status" port, but when miswired, does not fry the unit either. (Uh, don't ask how I learned this...)

Great Product. Highly Recommended. 9 out of 10 for the IR Transmitters not locking in correctly.

Thanks. I was wondering if I could extend the IR receiver with a standard 12 foot long 3.5mm M/F stereo cable.

Thanks for the tip about the 3.5 extension cable. I purchased this kit, plus a 50 ft cable to reach my media closet . It works perfectly.
