I have a Choice Select IR distribution block (http://www.amazon.com/Choice-Select-4-port-Distribution-Hub/dp/B001CZY936/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1346093032&sr=8-4&keywords=choice+select+ir+emitter) that I want to take IR signals from two zones. Previously, I had two IR receivers that I extended with some CAT-3 and spliced together. It worked ok. At the time I was using an HDMI-to-Cat6 wall box that took 3 cables - 2 cat-6 for the HDMI and the cat-3 for the IR. I ended up moving and taking the IR distribution block and leaving everything else. I found a newer HDMI over Cat6 solution that has IR built in as well (which saves me running an extra wire) This isn't the exact model but it's close (http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10425&cs_id=1042501&p_id=8008&seq=1&format=2). I plug the receiver in one end and a transmitter in the other. It's great but I have no idea how to connect this thing to my IR distribution block and one emitter isn't super-helpful with 6 or 7 things in my AV rack.

Any ideas?
