I had troubles with performance right away, which wasn't very good at all. Thought about sending it back, but I contacted the company ... and after describing the problem and the device I was controlling (a digital, HD cable box from Motorola), they immediately sent me a newer, dual receiver.
Now everything works flawlessly. The problem I was having was apparently specific to fitting the HD system I have.
Bottom line: You might want to contact the company to see if this specific IR repeater system works with the devices you want to control, especially if they're newer devices. (Note. The dual receiver can be found separately here on Amazon: Cmple - Dual Frequency IR Receiver SA HDTV DVR and DirectTV H21).
The only problem is that this is the third time I have purchased the unit (The parts are run through the wall and I don't feel like opening the wall) It is very fragile and the SLIGHTEST electrical disturbance renders it useless. On top of that you can't just buy a replacement brick. One time when the power went out, and another time when I was reconnecting a displaced connector.
First: The IR repeater works great! My use was to use a direct 2 connection male to male 1/8" from the block to the IR in on the back of the Onkyo. This did not work initially.
I read all the docs regarding this distribution block, but it didn't help much. There is very little to help someone do what I wanted. I actually called an authorized service center and he and I read the same page where he declared "no, it is obvious that you don't understand how it works." Turns out it works exactly as I read it, exactly as described and exactly as any reasonable person would expect it to work (note: probably wouldn't send my Onkyo to Carmel IN).
As it turns out, the remote has an ID that has to match with the receiver (done so that if you have more than one Onkyo device, they won't interfere). My receiver apparently was set to "3" of the three options and when I changed it to "1" it worked!Read more ›
