I have a question re: the "Remote In/Out" jacks on the rear panel...
My current setup has an older Xantech IR repeater system (previous version of this one
), with stick-on emitters on the front of all the gear (Yamaha, STB, BDP, Apple TV, etc). I'd like to take advantage of the Yamaha's "Remote In" jack on the rear panel, but not sure exactly what type of cable to use. I know the current Xantech IR emitters use mono plugs, but looking thru the Yamaha manual it does not indicate whether to use mono or stereo plug for that end of the connection.
So if I just buy a generic mono-to-mono cable, will this work for sending the signal from the Xantech connecting block (791-44
) into the Yamaha? Or a mono-to-stereo cable, with the mono end connected to the Xantech? Stereo-to-stereo?? I suppose I could just buy a bunch of different cables and see what works, but have no idea if I could damage anything if tip polarities aren't matched...
FWIW, I just ordered an IR adapter cable
for my Oppo BDP-83, which is a mono plug on one end, and stereo plug on the Oppo end. So just not sure if all AV gear with "Remote In" connections all use this arrangement. I feel like I'm fairly knowledgeable about most things AV, so kinda feel dumb asking about something simple like this!
Thanks in advance for anyone's help!
(disclaimer - I have not yet looked thru the general "Aventage xx10" thread for info...)EDIT: This post
indicates a mono-to-mono cable, but this is for a "Cables to Go" (non-Xantech) repeater system. I assume then this cable would work fine with Xantech?Edited by mak99 - 5/30/13 at 12:47pm
