I want to send IR commands from my control system to Oppo 93.
I have M-980 remote that sends signal to RF gateway.
My control system will send IR signal to Xantech 789-44 connecting block.
This takes in 1 IR inpout and provides IR to 4 devices.
I have two choices here.
I can use IR flashers that are cheap and they stick to the front of Oppo 93. Since my Bluray Player is in a closet this is not a problem
The other option is to plug in IR signal into the external IR In port of Oppo 93. Is the any better than using IR flasher?
I have read that I cannot just take an IR signal from the connecting block, use a mono cable and plug it into the Oppo 93. I heard that certain carrier frequencies need to be stripped before the signal can be sent to Oppo 93.
Xantech claims to make a 28EXT Ternal IR Input adapter that strips the IR frequencies so the IR signal from the connecting block can be passed to the External IR input of components like Oppo 93. However this adapter is expensive.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for me.
connecting block & using the rest of the kit. It works just fine. Too bad the original block did not work, as it had six outputs as compared to the now four - but it works!
