IR repeater

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So my rack will be back behind my second row of seats. I'm looking for ideas for an IR repeater. I'm thinking my best option will be maybe a Xantech 480-10D Kit.

Anyone else have something better to use. I ran cat6 to the front of the room next to the center channel Speaker input thinking I could use that. Still have time to run another wire if I need to.

That Xantech kit will do the trick. Xantech has good products. I would still run a spare cat6 or 2 while you can.

Besides a connection for the IR system it can also be used as a means for connecting other devices. i.e. microphone or controller (if not wireless or needs charging) for gaming a gaming system.

I bought this one:

It was cheap and works with all of my devices, including an HD cable box. It comes with a dual band receiver so you're good there.

I know it's an old thread...

Bought the Sewell in your link. Felt solid and looked to be decent quality. Temporarily installed to test emitter locations and all was working fine. 5 hours later it was dead. Wall wart croaked. Don't know whether it was a bad PS or the module caused the PS to die.

I'm sorry to hear that. Mine has been working great for almost five months.

When I talked to Sewell about the product they seemed to have great customer service. Hopefully you can get it worked out easily.

I'm going to send it back to Amazon for replacement and hope I get a good one back. Not giving up on the brand yet.
