OK, maybe we're not on the same page here. From what you are describing, are you assuming I'm trying to send a signal from
the Xantech to
the Pioneer? If so, that is incorrect.
Maybe I'm making the wrong assumption regarding the "IR REPEATER OUT" terminal on the 141. I'm assuming that this terminal is an output
port, not an input port.
I assumed the Pioneer's built-in IR sensor takes an IR signal for any
component (the 141 itself, along with Blu-ray, STB, HD DVD, etc), and outputs those signals via this IR REPEATER OUT port. I assumed you would connect this to an IR input port on the back of another piece of gear, or a Xantech-type connecting block for distribution to multiple components.
I know the Xantech receivers use a 3.5mm stereo mini-plug, per info on the Xantech website
. If it's as simple as plugging this type of cable/connector from the 141 to the Xantech connecting block, that would be perfect for me. This would allow me in the future to locate my gear into an adjacent storage room, sending their IR signals into the 141, out the IR REPEATER port, run a cable into the storage room, into a Xantech connecting block, with a bunch of stick-on emitters going to all the components..
Sorry if you think I'm beating a dead horse, but I want to make sure we're both on the same page!
