Harmony Hub to Denon AVR IR Input port
Anyone know offhand the correct way to configure this setup?
Harmony hub -> 2.5 mm mono male -> ??? ->Denon AVR IR input jack
I have read that the Denon AVR input should be a stereo 3.5 mm male, but I have also seen mention of needing a mono 3.5 mm male.
Quote from Logitech forums:
"From the Denon Website:
How do I connect to equipment using a stereo mini connector instead of a DB-9 connector?
The connection is simple and conforms to the following layout on the unit's jack:
TxD = Tip
RxD = Ring
Signal GND = Sleeve
Therefore for the stereo mini plug, you would connect the RxD of your controller to Tip, the TxD of
the controller to Ring, and the Signal GND to Sleeve"
Since IR is one-way, I'm guessing that either the tip or ring is useless, and should be ignored, so a mono input from the Hub should be appropriate.
Would a 2.5 mm mono (Tip and Sleeve, TS) -> 3.5 mm stereo (Tip, Ring, and Sleeve) adapter suffice?
If anyone knows the simple answer, without the explanation, that would be great too.
Thanks so much.
