So I have an Oppp BDP-93 and a cable box (American Scientific?) that have "IR" plugs.
I also have an IR repeater kit that takes a signal from a receiver by the TV, brings it to a distribution box, and currently senda it to my other components through a 'bug' emitter that sticks to the IR signal receivers on those components.
Since I have the IR plug in the Oppo and cable box, I'm assuming I can just run a cable between the IR distribution box into those plug holes and it will be a cleaner signal, and I won't have to worry about the IR bug emitters falling off like they like to do.
The problem, and it seems minor but is causing me headaches, is that I can' find a male/male cable suitable. All I can find is cables that terminate with a bug/emitter on one end.
So my question is:
1) Am I correct in assuming that the holes in the components will receive an IR signal if used? Or are these only for output?
2) Assuming I can use them, where the heck do I find a male/male cable to use for this purpose?
