Ok I am getting really frustrated with the Blaster part of this.
I am in a condo, the DLP TV 4 sony 995's a pany BR player and a few smaller devices. My living room is about 14 ft across but with the tv its about 11ft from back wall to the TV.
I have the IRBlaster on top of the TV pointing at the wall and it has been working ok for a few months.
Well I had to move a few things around, and for the life of me I can't get the blaster to work consistently covering the devices. The blaster itself only moved 4-6" but some how no matter how I point it I am not getting the same coverage for all the devices.
The question really breaks down to whats the IR spread and whats the best way to spray the room with a single transmitter ?
next is the IRBlaster port have enough power to drive 2 emitters ?
I have seen a few of the dual IR emitters and thought that maybe one route.
Next question is will the iTach drive the 2 and 3 head IR button emitters ?
Have you checked which port the blaster is plugged into on the itach and have you then checked that, that port has been configured on the itach as a blaster.
Also, the dual emitters do work, I use three dual emitters on one of my itachs currently.
bucket - Thanks, I doubled checked that the settings in the iTach didn't change, it is still set Port 3 to IRBLASTER and the other 2 ports are set as IR Out.
I may end up and use some 3 head buttons but that kind of defeats having the IR blaster for the devices that I should be able to control that way. I wanted to save the buttons for duplicate devices ( 995's 4+ )
