I have 4-zone Xantach IR distribution system, but have a couple of remote locations that I want to have remote receivers (connected to the Xantech in the theatre) that are difficult to pull wire to.


There are various standalone RF extender systems, the radio shack pyramids, I saw one recently that replaces the AA battery in a remote (can't find that one now, a link would be great), but all emit IR at the other end.


Does anyone know if the Xantech 172 XTRA Link2 that injects RF into coax, or the INJ94/CPL94B/CPL10 will work without conflict over coax where I currently have DBS Sat and OTA RF signals combined? I'm currently using splitters/combiners to get DBS and modulated video to these locations, and this might be a solution as I have these single RG6 runs to the locations. The specs for the coupler in the Xantech catalog (in the U.K. section of the page, no details on U.S.) mention a 5-900Mhz splitter contained, so this might cause problems.


That failing, I'd love to find something high-quality that I can use proper standalone IR receivers, plug into an RF 'bridge', and have a similar bridge in the theatre that receives the RF, but acts as an emitter (ie. plugs right into an emitter jack in the Xantech).


Powerline is a possibility if anything exists, but I might have some problems there as I have two meters and multiple panels (don't ask) so some pairs of outlets don't see each other until the transformer at the power lines.


I have the Radio Shack pyramids but it seems so much noise (is it 900Mhz? 2.5?) from something in the house (802.11b perhaps if it's 2.5, I have multiple AP's) that it basically acts as an IR blocker from any other remotes in the room.


Thanks for any pointers.
