Product Features
Forward infrared signals to operate electronic components behind closed doors
• Allows for control of devices behind closed doors
• Includes emitters to control up to four devices
• LED light confirms IR communication
Product Description
Does your entertainment system have wooden doors, or would you like to mount your components in a closet? Without a clear line of sight infrared (IR) signals from a remote control will not reach the equipment. We have the answer. Our remote control repeater kit contains all equipment necessary to remotely operate 4 components (expandable to 12 components) using your standard remotes. Mount the IR receiver in a central location and connect to the IR distribution block. This block repeats the signals through emitters to your electronic components. Your components may now be mounted in your entertainment center, closet or another room! The kit is self-contained and easy to connect.

With this kit, you may mount a receiver in a convenient place on or near your entertainment system. The receiver has a 9 foot cable that is then attached to the repeater system that is mounted in your entertainment cabinet. The kit includes 4 emitters. These emitters are connected from the repeater system and placed over the IR receiver of the equipment.

The IR receiver and IR repeater have blinking blue LEDs to confirm receipt of the IR signal; the IR repeater is designed for mounting on shelf or wall. You can use your existing remotes for simple installation and hookups. Packaged for resale.

For your convenience, the AC/DC Adapter (#98025) is available for this item. To order this replacement part, please call us at 1-800-506-9607.

Please Note: Careful consideration must be used when placing the IR receiver near a plasma display. Since a plasma display emits IR frequencies during use, it may cause interference. At this time, the ATT U-Verse cable boxes are not compatible with the C2G, formerly Cables To Go, IR Receiver Kit. The product team at C2G is working hard to find a solution for this issue and will update you as soon as possible. Replacement components may be ordered online: 10ft Infrared Receiver with 3.5mm Plug (#98045), 10ft Single Infrared Emitter Cable (#40432) and 10ft Dual Infrared Emitter Cable (#40433).

The bulk Cat5 cable connects from the screw terminal connection on the IR distribution block to the 3.5mm keystone. Only three of the eight conductors of the Cat5 cable will be used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steve the Tinkerer from Works as advertised...sort of I bought this for use in a large storage unit with a loft. I have a second set of speakers up there and wanted a way to control volume from the receiver downstairs (under the loft). Packaging, simplicity and, despite others' comments, to the point instructions, seemed to meet my needs...until I hooked it up the way I intended - power to the switched outlet on my receiver. The box was powered but the repeater appeared not to be accepting a signal - as evidenced by the lack of the blinking blue light. Double checked. and it was hooked up correctly. Figured I would box it up and return but decided to plug in to a wall outlet and it worked as advertised - nothing more, and slightly less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Highland Doc from Good unit Just some unpublished info for all; As with most of these type devices, you can parallel connect 2 of the receivers and then control your home stereo/theatre system from two different rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ramblin Ron from Excellent Choice This product was perfect for my situation. I hung my 52" LCD on the wall but didn't want any other equipment to show. I hid the Satelite box and Blue-Ray DVD in an adjoining closet behind the wall. I'm sitting about 25 feet from the TV and everything works just perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve from OK - here's the deal with this. It must be DIRECT wired to the Infrared Remote Control Repeater base unit. This wall plate takes the place of the mini IR receiver that is included with the base unit. You will need to run a cable from the back side of this plate to the base unit. An Ethernet cable works fine as the connection instructions call for two twisted pair to be used. Installed as intended, it works flawlessly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tech home user from Not quite there purchased to control my uverse cable box to a flat screen tv on a bedroom wall. cable box was in closet and wired thru wall to tv. ir receiver was passed thru wall using a 1/8" stereo plug and then a plug to plug cable to ir box. found best operation by using the 2 emitters attached to uverse. Sometimes requires multiple trys to change a channel. Controller to tv for on off or volume works without a hitch every time. Just ir to uverse box via repeater is inconsistent

Rated 4 out of 5 by Woodbike from Took persistence to get it to work! System includes a Sony Blue-ray, Motorola Satellite receiver and a Harmon Kardon AVR210 System worked with the Satellite box immediately, but I could not get the Harmon Kardon receiver to work with the supplied emitter. I called tech support and they did not have any recommendations. Based on a tip on a website, I tried plugging directly into the IR in on the HK with a cable I use to plug my iPhone into my car stereo. Now I have the whole system working!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubba from works great This was used in a commercial setting for a lunchroom TV. The cable box was hidden above the T-Bar ceiling and only the TV is visiable on the wall. System works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by George from Works Great I mounted my plasma on the wall in the family room and moved all my A/V equipment into the basement below it. The 40430 extends the remote to the basement with minimal lag time. A/V Receiver, DVD Player and Cable Box (FIOS QIP 6416) all work well. I have the IR receiver under a bookcase so the remote control range is reduced but I am sure this would not be true if the receiver was out in the open.

Questions & Answers

For immediate answers, please with us for help!

I have two of item #40430 and each will sometimes have the Blue light flicker. Not brightly but somewhat dim. One of the units now is blinking brightly all the time and I have trouble getting the cable box to respond. Do you have advice ?
Asked by: Marty
Mystery SOLVED ! C2G send me a new receiver and I installed it with same issue as before. One day I noticed that whenever I picked up my cellphone the blue light went totally OFF. Apparently the phone puts out a IR to sense when a hand is near to activate the Clock. If I just turn the phone face down problem solved. WOW !!

Will ths unit work as a stand alone remote ir receiver for the Rotel RSP 1068?
Asked by: Rick
We would not recommend it to be used directly with that device. It should be used with the 40430 IR repeater kit.

I have a Marantz receiver that receives at 38.6kHz that I am unable to get to operate with the Model 40430 repeater I ordered. Is there a way to make these units compatible?
Asked by: Jerry
Unfortunately, our product has a compatibility problem with the Marantz receivers. We do not have a solution or work around for this issue at this time. You can try connecting it to the IR port on the Marantz with a 3.5mm cable from the Emitter port to the receiver.

I have purchased two of these, along with the 40478 IIR wall plate extension. They work fabulously. That said, for direct IR port on device to the repeater kit (when not using emitters), I notice that some cables work and some don't. Is there a cable specification for direct IR port connection?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately there is not a specifcation for this port. It is best to use a Mono 3.5mm cable. There are some devices that will not work properly when directly connected because these devices are looking for a proprietary receiver.

I have a new wireless at&t hd cable box. I have placed the receiver over the IR receiver, but it doesn't work. I have tried all of the repeaters and settings that I can think of.
Asked by: Matt
This item is not compatible with AT&T Uverse. You would need product 40696 that is our IR repeater that is compatible.
