Hi.


My system has an InFocus SP7210, an HDTivo, and a Pioneer VS-56Txi receiver. Also I have a Xantech IR Hidden Link Expansion Kit (#8165) from smarthomer which containts a Xantech Tabletop IR sensor, a One Zone connecting block and stick on IR emitters.


I notice that the HD Tivo, projector and receiver all have phono plug inputs that are for IR transmitters. Presumably there is a way to use this rather than the IR blaster but I can't find any documentation for this?


I tried it (but may have done it wrong) connecting the tabletop sensor directly, and also after the connecting block, and it didn't seem to work.


What do I need to do to hook this up? And only the receiver has an output as well as an input -- can I just use a Y connector to hook up multiple?


Thank you very much if anyone can help!


Josh

AFAIK the IR blaster ports on the TiVo are output only (for controlling cable boxen and the like), though I don't have an HD TiVo so they may be a totally different beast.

for what it's worth, i connected a mono plug from the connecting block to the IR input of my H/K AVR-435 receiver and it works. i guess it depends on the manufacturer. some are indeed ouputs only and some are proprietary, such as with Sony, Pioneer, and Onkyo.
