USES of Remote Control Extender

  • Allows you hide pretty much any set top box, media player, android box, DVD / Blue-ray player, games console and retain full remote control functionality

ADVANTAGES of Remote Control Extender

  • Works with over 95% of modern devices and remote controls
  • It is easy to set up
  • The cable is long, giving you extra flexibility
  • Normally operates very well
  • Very inexpensive option
  • Means you can discretely hide your set top box, media player, android box, DVD / Blu-ray player or games console in a cabinet
  • You could also hide smaller set top boxes behind a wall mounted TV and still have full remote control functionality
  • We have even seen this used in some cases where a TV is on a stand that is at the same height as your couch but there is an obstruction in the way like a coffee table and it is annoying to have to 'aim' your remote precisely
  • In this case, the remote control extender could be used directly with the TV and put the extender's receiver unit on top of the TV to give you better 'line of sight'
  • A lot of infra red remote control extenders come with a 3.5mm jack that handles power and signals but these are not universal as the polarity of the 3.5mm jack differs between manufacturers so you can't use them with other brands
  • This IR blaster is USB powered, so is pretty much universal
  • All you need is a spare USB port on your TV or set top box and you're all set
  • it's just a really handy piece of kit to have in many scenarios

DISADVANTAGES of Remote Control Extender

  • When the receiver eye is powered, it lights up and some folks can find that annoying
  • There is no way around that but we'd suggest placing it as discreetly as possible while still maintaining line of sight
  • Only works with infra red remote controls (Pretty much all are these days)
  • Will not work with air mouse remotes (Gyroscopic control), these use different frequencies
