I have two IR networks in my house that I want to connect. I have one that is used everywhere buy my home theater. It has recivers around the house that connect into a HUB which then has a bunch of emitters. I then have 2 receivers in the theater that connect to a hub with emitters.

I now want to connect the two. I want the IR receivers around the house to be able to control the equipment in the theater.

I am thinking that I would connect two wires as an emitter from the house HUB and connect to input in theater. There is usaully three wires used but I assume the other is for power. The three connections are V+, ground and signal. Which two should I use? Seems obvious to use signal. But what is the second, V+?

Any help appreciated.

IR Receiver ---> IR HUB ---> emitter connection --> IR HUB

If I'm reading your request correctly, you want to make your 2 IR systems one zone.?.?

If this is the case take all the sensor wires and tie the together. Use a 12VDC 1AMP power supply to power all 4 sensors as well as the hub. You can come off of one emitter port and go into the other HUB as well. I would use a Xantech amplified connecting block if you have intermittent operation.


Watch HDTV!!! Nothing else comes close!
