Easy to install and works really well, I have a TEAC Hi Fi which is a bit fussy about where the IR remote control is aligned and also in a cupboard with this unit both problems resolved. I fitted the IR transmitters to the inside of the door so avoiding them spoiling the appearance of the Hi Fi and the controls work perfectly (the layout of the wires need tidying up).

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 moved house in December last year and was forced to move from Virgin Media to Sky as the street which we moved to doesn’t have cable. My existing IR extender didn’t work with the Sky box, in fact it stopped it working at all so I needed a new IR extender.

I did my research and initially decided on a Neet IR extender:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00H9E429A/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0

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.

Not as I expected because I was expecting the reciever and transmitter to be linked by radio signal. However provided you can get the wire to go from where you have the remote to where you have the device you wish to control this device is very good. It would be great for getting a signal to devices within a boxed unit. Luckily I just needed to through a wall so didn't really need a fully wireless device as I could drill a hole. The device would be useless where the rooms were far away as the length of the cable is not designed for this function. It will in fact work very well but it is one unit and has no RF function. It seems well made and in some circumstances is better than the RF solution I had in mind. 28/8/2015 - About a year in use and trouble free, decided to upgrade it to 5 stars even though it isn't RF. As long as the application allows for wires rather than RF this is a nice product..

Nicely made good value kit works perfectly with my old Sony DVD/HDD recorder but not with newer Panasonic DMR BWT735 Blu- ray and HDD recorder. It appears to receive the IR signal but (LEDs on box and receiver flash) but not to repeat it as there is no response from the Panasonic. The alternative though much more expensive repeater kit from Keene works perfectly with both recorders.

Brilliant, totally transparent - just stick the transmitters on the dvd / set top box etc over the IR sensor and point the remotes at the pickup. Powered it via a usb cable from one of the TV's usb sockets. TIP: you need to find the sensor on the dvd etc - so cover the entire front with a book and slide it sideways slowly whilst repeatedly operating its remote. You'll know when you've uncovered the sensor. Works with my Denon AV receiver, Manhattan Freesat box, Sony Blu ray, LG Plasma tv.

Does the job that I needed it for. My only quarrel is that the included power supply has a constant buzzing noise, which was a pain seeing that I'm using it in a living room. I have opted to power it using a USB cable run from my Xbox into it, which works flawlessly. Love the fact that you can mount it, mine is attached to the back of a media cabinet out of sight.

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.

Excellent product at an excellent price.
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.

Got this to upgrade from a basic 3 device system bought several years ago. This looks like the sort of device that a professional installer would use. It has a metal chassis/case that is easy to mount (mine is on the inside of my AV cupboard door) and extremely flexible giving control from upto 3 rooms to as many as 24 devices ( 3 inputs and 6 outputs each capable of powering 4 emitter LEDs). It seems a bit overkill for my humble requirements, but its immediately noticeable that the range is far better than the basic model its replacing. An added bonus is the repeater box indicates when IR activity is detected and so it can also determine if you have a noisy IR environment from say an older plasma TV.
