The cables for the Eye Extender are long. This was important to us because it means they reach the projector *and* the rest of the equipment. And I like that they come stuck together but can easily be separated. I only separated what I needed to, and this makes it a little easier to keep cables neat. The little IR eyes are small and discreet. I'm very pleased with this product!
I wasted a lot of time and effort trying to get these to work. I wish I could get those hours of my life back. I found a 3 eye emitter sold on Amazon from Infrared Resources. It is better in every way. Actual 3M VHB sticky pads (with extras) , much stronger light signals, heavier wire. etc... The best part about the emitters from Infrared Resources is that they work as to be expected.
I love my Next Generation Remote Control Extender, but they really need to reconsider the junk emitters that they sell with their otherwise good product and sell something like these.
Therefore it did not work to allow me to remove the native IR receivers of all my controlled devices from direct line of signal, for example, closing them and the main unit within a cabinet. I suppose given a different set of devices, it could have worked with careful taping in place -- your results may vary.
The tape I ended up using to try to position the Emitters would have been needed anyway, as the adhesive provided around each Emitter proved insufficient on its own to hold in my air-conditioned home environment for more than a week. This was despite careful preparation and application at the IR receiver sites.
I think the design needs to be improved at least as far as allowing it to attach more securely, and effectively strengthening the signal somehow in order for this to work consistently with receivers for all devices.
They stink! They don't transmit through the backside where the adhesive attaches them to your component (unlike the Xantechs). So, you have to find a way to direct the beam, form the top surface of the emitter, into the component from a short distance away. How do you do that without hanging them mid-air? It's tough. You have to devise supports in some cases. In other cases, I attached two emitters, back to back, and hung them in front of two components and that increased effectiveness.
These don't seem to transmit a solid signal reliably. I had to constantly send separate signals to various devices with my Harmony 650 remote. It will take you quite a long time to find the correct positioning of these and they will be jostled out of place over time, requiring re-positioning work again.
Spend the extra money and get the Xantech DL85K system. It works perfectly.
