Product Description

Simply put, it extends the power of your remote control allowing its signal to penetrate walls and ceilings, giving you a successful wireless solution to expand the signal of your remote control. The operation is simple and brilliant: Highlights Operation possible for a DVD player, TV, satellite equipment, stereo equipment, etc. from any room in Up to 100 meters transmission distance, 25 meters through walls and ceilings Converts IR signal from remote control radio signal Works with virtually any original remote control, suitable for almost all models (not compatible with Bang & Olufsen) No expensive and difficult installation of the equipment necessary

Manufacturer's Description

The Marmitek PowerMid XL infrared extender set allows you to control your TV, VCR, satellite receiver or audio installation from anywhere in the house using your existing remote controls - even through walls and floors. Simply place the transmitter in the room from which you want to control the equipment, and the receiver within sight of the equipment you wish to control. The PowerMid receiver converts the infrared (IR) signal from your remote and converts it to a radio frequency (RF) transmission which is picked up by the receiver which then converts it back to infrared. If your equipment is hidden away in a cupboard then you can connect an optional Marmitek IR Eye infrared extender cable to the receiver and you can control the equipment without having to open the cupboard doors.

Extra transmitters and receivers are available separately so that you can control your equipment from different rooms and/or control equipment located in more than one room.

Should have bought this years ago(remote extender set and extra transmitter), no more running downstairs to change the channel or rewind sky plus cos u missed a bit!! This worked straight from the box, no setting up it is foolproof!! unless you didn't read the product info like another reviewer on the 2nd feb 09> This only replicates your remote(full sky Plus features)in another room,, it does not transmit the sky pictures to the other room!.. you need a splitter and cable for that(i already had the pictures cabled in but had no skybox control)Neat and unobtrusive i love it, The transmitter is the bit for your bedroom, the reciever is the bit for in front of the skybox, i bought an extra transmitter so i can control sky from my sons room- I also bought an exra remote control so i can leave one upstairs.. Buy It>> you will not regret it.. ahh what program shall i record.. from my bedroom!! top bit of kit.. my brother in law has had his for 7 years and it still works seamlessly.. great seller..great product.. never need to leave the bed..well except for work!!

These cheeky little pyramids simply sorted out my need to control my satelite TV from the bedroom.
Everything works just as if you are sitting in the same room as the main decoder box.
(all you need is a power point and somewhere to sit the pyramids).

I bought this because I wanted to put our DVD and V+ (cable box) in a closed sideboard. The little pyramids are funkily designed and smaller than expected, 11cms tall. The pyramids worked first time after a very simple installation. Overall: very chuffed.

Having tried loads of different options from MAPLINS nothing seems to have worked with the V+box. Then read a review that this would work so gave it a try since I wanted to hide my V+ box behind the fire place as I had put my Plasma on the wall above and it did...

Not recommended if you have a Plasma TV:-

1) The transmitter seems to find something in the light output from a Plasma TV, causing it to transmit constantly when the TV is switched on. The transmitter is behind and above the TV, but even very dim reflected light causes this problem.
2) The light output from a Plasma TV can swamp the output from your remote control and cause it to be ignored
3) If the Plasma TV is turned on, the resulting constant transmission interfered with my wireless door bell and with my car key-fob, making it difficult to unlock the car
4) The transmitter or receiver somehow picked up random signals and caused the equipment I was controlling to switch on and off at odd times, so I had to be sure to switch on the extender set only when needed.

I positioned the receiver in the bedroom and the sender end in the lounge, so upstairs and through about 4 walls and probably about 40 feet and it worked perfectly. Took me about 2 minutes to set up literally plug in and go. Great product love it.

Very pleased with this kit. We have a tv in our kitchen that is wired to the sky HD box in the sitting room. To change the channel we had to stand in the doorway and point the remote into the sitting room at the sky box. Now I have this set up, we can change the channel in the kitchen. Worked easily right out of the box with no trouble setting it up. I simply plugged the two units into the power and they worked. I had tried another system for this purpose that sounded as if it functioned in the same way but wouldn't work at all, so I was relieved when this worked so easily. Would definitely recommend.

Having just switched completely to Virginmedia; the old remote control extenders no longer worked. I saw these and decided to give them a try. They arrived this morning and took me no longer than a few minutes to set up. They work perfectly for my wife to change channels etc from her bedroom TV to her work room were the Tivo Box is installed.
One word of warning. DO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!! Because they are wireless operated; it is easy to assume that you put the Transmitter in the Remote room and the receiver by the Box - WRONG!!! The TX/RX refers rather to the Infra Red operation - so the receiver goes in your remote room and the Transmitter goes by the Digibox/whatever. It is an easy mistake to make.
