IR over stereo cable? (IR to IR w/ 3.5mm)
Hi all -
I've had good success with my distributed video setup thanks to the folks on here.
The last item is getting IR from my harmony hub over my octava HDMI over ethernet to my TV. The IR works fine, but I'm essentially using the IR blaster from the harmony hub TO the IR receiver of the Octava.
Harmony Hub ---(IR)--> Octava transmitter --(Ethernet)-->Octava Receiver --(IR)-->TV
I'd love to send the signal from the hub directly to the octava transmitter over a wire, without IR in the middle. The Octava uses a standard 3.5mm stereo jack while the harmony uses something smaller.
So my question is...if I was to splice the two wires together, would that work to eliminate the IR blaster and receiver?
As of now, I have a blaster pointing at an IR receiver which just seems wrong!
