I don't know if this is the correct place for this question, or if the JVC RS45 thread in the PJ forum is better, but thought that this might be more appropriate.
My question:Is there a way to extend the wire on the JVC PKEM1 3D IR emitter?
I am currently building an HT and will have my PJ (a JVC RS45) shelf mounted in a cubby/closet behind the rear wall of the HT projecting through a cut out opening.
It's on another forum, but here is a link to my HT build if you would like to see the layout: Link
The drywall will be going up tomorrow and I am thinking of running a chase from that PJ closet to somewhere in the ceiling right around where I would like to mount the emitter.
However, the ideal place would be where the ceiling steps up to a higher height, which is located about 1/3 from the front and 2/3 from the back of the room. But that distance is too far away for the included cable.Is there a standard cable that I can buy (male-female) to extend this cable, or am I limited to the prefabricated length?
What kind of cable is this?
I'm not familiar with the connector on the attached cable, it almost looks like an old Apple Mac serial cable, but without as many pins. This one looks like it only has 3, whereas I think the old Mac serial cables had 4 or 5 pins.
If there is no way to extend the cable, I guess I could just mount the emitter as far forward as I can and try to make sure that the light from the PJ doesn't hit it.
But it would be preferable to mount the emitter at the point where the ceiling height rises in the front so that potentially interfering with the light path, and also being able to see the emitter from the seating area, won't be an issue at all.
Any help would be much appreciated!
