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).

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.

I installed the IR Remote Control Repeater kit and it works fine. Although there is no blinking blue confirmation LED on either the receiver or the control unit. Is there a way to switch the blue LED on and off?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unforutnately there is no way to turn off the Blue Light. This is a confirmation light letting the user know that the device is receiving a IR signal.

I own this unit and the IR Emitter is no longer sending my Comcast remote commands to the Comcast HD box (the signal to the HDTV however works fine). The failure started when I was moving around the cabinet and the top of the IR Emitter that sticks to the front of the Comcast HD box came off and the end wire became exposed. Please advise if/how I can replace the faulty IR Emitter & get it working again.
Asked by: Anonymous
You can try to experiment with different placement of the emitter to see if the Comcast HD box will receive the IR signals in a different area. If not you may want to consider replacing the emitter cable. You can consider emitter replacement part 40432 (https://www.cablestogo.com/product/40432).

Can you tell me correct way to extend the ir receiver eye with cat 5 cable. Thank you
Asked by: Perry
If you are extending it via Cat5e, you have a couple of options. You could purchase our 37036 keystone adapter and connect 3 wires, ground, +12V, signal. The status port does not need to be connected. See pinout between the block and the 3.5mm keystone below: IR block - 3.5mm keystone +12V - G GND - R Signal - L

Will this work with my camcorder Canon Vixia HV40
Asked by: wwjd
I was unable to locate what frequency range the Canon Vixia HV40 operates in. Our 40430 Infrared Repeater Kit receives Infrared in a 34 kHz-40kHz frequency range and transmits in a 38 kHz frequency range. Contact Canon to see if their camcorder operates in this range. If so, then it will work with our Infrared Repeater Kit.

Asked by: Tom
The only known incompatibilities would be the AT&T U-Verse box and Marantz receiver. Your equipment should not have any issues with our IR repeater kit. If you do experience any problems, please contact us back and we will help you resolve them.

This looks like a great product that gets great reviews. I just have two questions. First, do you know if this is compatible with Yamaha receivers, specifically the RX-V673? Also, how does the signal get transmitted to the receiver? Will I be placing an emitter over the IR receiver eye on the receiver or just putting an emitter in the cabinet with the components to be controlled? Thanks!
Asked by: JR
We have been unable to determine the infrared frequency your Yamaha receiver's range, however, our 40430 transmits the infrared signal at a frequency of 38 kHz. You will want to confirm with Yamaha if their equipment can receive a signal in that range. The IR signal is transmitted from your remote to our receiver which travels to the receiver box and is relayed to the emitters near your equipment. You would want to place the emitters either on the IR window of your Yamaha receiver or a few inches away (inside of your cabinet) for best results.

I'm looking for an IR extender that is compatible with a Cisco Explorer 4640HDC set-top box which operates at 57 kHz. The cablebox manual notes that Cisco part # 1004648 can be plugged directly into the 3.5mm IR port on the back of the cablebox and power is supplied via the stereo plug. Is your Dual Band IR Receiver (part # 98045) a suitable replacement for the Cisco receiver (i.e., can it be plugged directly into the IR port of the cablebox without the need for a connecting block)?

Yes, it will work with 40430. You would use a cable with at least 4 conductors like a Cat5e or Cat6 cable and connect the screw down terminal block on the distribution hub from 40430 to the connection block on the back of the wall plate. Both will have terminals for +12V, GND, Signal, Status.

You can use a regular 3.5mm stereo audio extension cable up to 25ft. Over that length we would recommend using Cat5e wire from the screw down terminal on the distribution block.
