Hello everyone,


Here's my problem:


I want to use the IR socket on the rear of my Tivo instead of the glued-on IR on the face of the machine. I have a dual emitter IR cable (with the mono mini-headphone jack), the mini-jack plugged into a 1 X 4 IR amplifier/repeater from Smarthome. It was working fine. I then clipped off one of the IR emitters, stripped the two wires down. I then clipped off the same with another cable, in order to splice the two cables together so I would have a mono mini-jack on each side of the cable. The remaining IR repeater was still hanging there. I used butt splices to connect the two sets of two wires. Needless to say, this did not work.


I'm probably being stupid about this. Can anyone give me some advice on what I'm doing wrong?


Thanks in advance for any advice.
