Global Cache iTach Wifi2IR and IR Blaster

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok I am getting really frustrated with the Blaster part of this.

I am in a condo, the DLP TV 4 sony 995's a pany BR player and a few smaller devices. My living room is about 14 ft across but with the tv its about 11ft from back wall to the TV.

I have the IRBlaster on top of the TV pointing at the wall and it has been working ok for a few months.

Well I had to move a few things around, and for the life of me I can't get the blaster to work consistently covering the devices. The blaster itself only moved 4-6" but some how no matter how I point it I am not getting the same coverage for all the devices.

The question really breaks down to whats the IR spread and whats the best way to spray the room with a single transmitter ?

next is the IRBlaster port have enough power to drive 2 emitters ?

I have seen a few of the dual IR emitters and thought that maybe one route.

Next question is will the iTach drive the 2 and 3 head IR button emitters ?

Thanks for any info you can pass along

G'day Rob,
Have you checked which port the blaster is plugged into on the itach and have you then checked that, that port has been configured on the itach as a blaster.
Also, the dual emitters do work, I use three dual emitters on one of my itachs currently.

bucket - Thanks, I doubled checked that the settings in the iTach didn't change, it is still set Port 3 to IRBLASTER and the other 2 ports are set as IR Out.

I may end up and use some 3 head buttons but that kind of defeats having the IR blaster for the devices that I should be able to control that way. I wanted to save the buttons for duplicate devices ( 995's 4+ )

Have you tried port two as the ir blaster. I sometimes get the port 1 and port 3 mixed up.

Well via the itach info the blaster has to go into the 3rd port and that never changed from working great to not working so good frown.gif

I think my next step is to try something like this : http://www.amazon.com/TiVo-Head-IR-Emitter-Blaster/dp/B0054MAVXA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1338998915&sr=8-4

I haven't messed with it in a while because I just haven't been home a lot. First time firing up the system was to watch Batman Dark Knight Returns pt1 and Avengers.

I'll look into picking one up when things slow down at work.
