Update 8th April 2016: just died... all the indicators would suggest its powered up OK but does not function all, this is the 4th unit from 3 different manufacturers, I am not convinced of their reliability
I did my research and initially decided on a Neet IR extender:
That was a big mistake. I tried two of their units and got absolutely no response from either of them. They were useless as far as I was concerned. Neet concluded that there was some kind of incompatibility between my AV equipment and their extender so, I went for the DB Power IR extender which is around £12 cheaper than the Neet one. It works perfectly and also appears to be superior in build quality: the hub is metal as opposed to the Neet’s plastic.
I also note that one of the other reviewers stated that the DB Power IR extender didn’t work with his Panasonic Blue-Ray recorder. I have the same model and it works perfectly with mine.
The extender was very easy to set up and the hub is mountable if you need it to be: there are holes for screws so that you can attach the hub to the inside of your cabinet. Unlike the Neet IR extender which as I’ve said, didn’t work at all, this one worked first time with no hassle.
I have found the DB Power IR extender to work excellently: you don’t even have to point the remote directly at the receiver. It still works if I point my remote, a Harmony One universal remote, at the ceiling. There’s also plenty of 3.5mm sockets for extra receivers and transmitters .If you want to save yourself a bit of cash and increase your chances of the extender being compatible with your equipment, go for the DB Power IR extender.
It can have 3 IR receivers plugged in, and 6 IR double emitters, so plenty of room to expand. Works with a Sky+HD box hidden away in a cupboard.
Control my Virgin Media box, Yamaha Amp, Android TV box and VCR(!) which are all in a room next to the lounge.
I run it of a USB plug, but you can also use the mains lead with it.
The receiver lead is not as long as the transmitters, but that was fine for me, it is still reasonably long.
The unit is very small and has the ability to take extra transmitters and receivers.
