Does anybody know where I can buy a two-prong (minijack-style) ir emitter?


Basically, I need the following:

http://www.amazon.com/Smarthome-Stic.../dp/B00142ARBK


but with two prongs, not one, at the end. You know, like a stereo minijack cable? Basically two rings instead of one



The sticky stuff wore off of mine, so I couldn't get it to stick. So I then when up to the local electronics store, and they gave me a couple inches of heavy-duty double-sided adhesive. That did not work. Which is why I'm asking.


Thanks!

Usually the IR receivers have 3 wires, the IR emitters are 2 wire. Are you sure you need a 3 wire emitter? I don't know of any.


The emitters have no reason to have a 3rd wire that I know of.

Check xantech's web site for a large selection http://xantech.com/Infrared/Infrared/IREmitters/



What kind of IR system is it?

Two-wire, yes


And yes, you're right...one contact/ring/whatever


Are they available at Radio Shack?

No, Radio Shack doesn't carry them, you will have to order off the web.


You can google for a supplier, but I have tried irblaster.info, and I've been buying from tselectronic.com for 35 years because they are local for me. Then there's ebay and amazon.


irblaster.info might be cheaper on the shipping, they sent my stuff in the mail.

Would you recommend this? :

And should I get a couple spares in case the sticky stuff wears off?


And also, where is the ir window located on the dct5100?

The one you show is fine, and I'd certainly get some spares too. I have had sticky issues with my blasters too, once they loose the stick, it's shot.


On the DCT, the IR window is near the message indicator to the left of the large channel number display.

Thanks!

Also a dab of hot melt glue works better for me than the sticky adhesive crap. It also comes right off of my equipment without a mess too!

just another option...
