The Cablesson IR over HDMI kit enables you to use your remote and control functions (such as pause, rewind etc) even when the source devices are located out of sight in another room or hidden inside a cupboard.
Relay your remote controls IR signal down on a HDMI cable from the HDTVs location where the HDMI source device is out of sight/range of the remote control.
How This Works -The Cablesson HDMI over IR kit uses the unused CEC channel of your HDMI cable run to send the IR signal through it (CEC channel is used only for certain HDTVs that can send control commands to your video sources, so if you use CEC, you don't need to extend your remote controls)
Compatible with any HDMI equipped device, with the Cablesson HDMI over IR Kit there is no need to install additional cabling, you can use your existing HDMI cable. You can even use the IR over HDMI Kit with other brands of HDMI Matrix, Switches and Splitters.
Very easy to setup, the package consists of 2 x adapters that simply connect onto both ends of your HDMI cable. Once connected the magic eye receiver dongle sees the remote control signals and sends them back down the HDMI cable to be blasted at the source by the transmitter dongle.
NB. Manufacturer HDMI link / CEC protocols such as Samsung Anynet Link, Sony Bravia Link, Panasonic Viera Link etc will not function during IR over HDMI mode. CEC needs to be selected on the adapters to re-enable the shared manufacturer HDMI link functions. The supported IR frequency range is 33khz - 60khz.

It even has a setting to allow use on an HDMI cable where TV and DVD etc are the same brand and allow one remote to control both units. I've set mine up on a cable between two units which are different brands to avoid any incompatabilities. I'd also recomend using a good quality HDMI cable. This may be the reason some users have found the IR over HDMI injector has not worked. I have found it to be faultless since I bought it 5 months ago. I couldn't be happier with it....well at least until some newer tech comes out. But for now I'd say buy it!
One additional point to note is the part that plugs into the end of the HDMI cable has a cable for the sensor/sender which plugs into the side (see the pictures on the item description). For my set-up this did get in the way of another cable. I used a 90 degree HDMI elbow connector (cheap on Amazom) to get around this.
I'm using this IR injector in conjunction with a "Ceed Cable HDMI Male to Female Ceed Cable 270 degrees Gold Plated elbow Connector Adapter" B00F8KT6TI so that the IR module and the HDMI plug do not stick out too far from the back of the TV set. (Note if you buy one of these elbow connectors make sure you get the one bending the right direction for your needs. The first one I bought was a 90 degree item, going the wrong way for me. Thankfully they also make a 270 degree version. You live and learn).
I'm using a 10 METER PRO GOLD RED (1.4a Version, 3D) HDMI TO HDMI CABLE www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0036BHCSS/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 between the two IR modules (i.e between the TV and the TiVo box) and I'm able to control both the TiVo and the hi-fi without any issue.
I stuck the IR receiver LED on the back of the TV close to the edge so you can't even see it. Suggest you experiment with the placement of the receiver and transmitter LEDs to see what works best for you.
So to summarise its a great small product, good quality and it does everything it is designed to.
Very quick delivery too!
This worked first time after locating the IR receiver on the front of the Sky box. On my unit it is 52mm to the left of the center point on the front of the Sky box. Found the best way to position the IR transmitter was to use a a clear plastic ruler attached to the top of the Sky box with double sided sticky tape with the IR transmitter positioned on the end of the rule. It helps if you position the rule at an angle so it does not obstruct the signal from the remote when used in the same room as the Sky box.
Can now control Sky from my bedroom.

Worked perfectly for my set-up, which also uses the thin HDMI cables (Monoprice with RedMere technology); I had worried it may not work due to the cables. Read morePublished 23 months ago by P. C. Nicholls
