HDMI Plus IR Repeater Over Cat5 Wall PlateHow it works
Your output device that has the HDMI connector ( Cable box, Satellite receiver, DVD player ) plugs into the INPUT of the HDMI Transmitter with a HDMI cable.
Then you plug 2 Cat 5e cables into the back of the HDMI transmitter Wall Plate and run your cat 5e cables to the HDMI Receiver Wall Plate.
Place your IR Receiver in a out of a way location a few feet from the TV that you can clearly aim your remote control at.
Your HDMI Receiver then hooks up via HDMI cable to your HDMI input on your HDTV display.
Place the IR Receivers on or near the devices that you want to control.
Plug the AC adapter ( included ) into the Receiver.
Its that easy.
Please note -
Two Cat5e or Cat 6 cables (not included)are needed to connect the sender and the receiver units to each other.
For distances up to 100 feet, shielded CAT5e or CAT 6 cables are recommended for optimal video quality.

The IR Repeater is really easy to install -
1. Place the Receiver in your desired location. You can attach it to the location with the included double sided tape if you wish.
2. Place the IR emitters on devices that you want to control. (Place them on the IR window on the devices) by peeling and sticking the emitters on the device.
3. Plug the target into the Wall Plate ( output side ) where it is labeled IR receiver. Then plug the IR emitters into the ( input side ) locations 1 and 2 of the wall plate where it is labeled emitters.

Tips for Installing Cat 5e Cat 6 Products
Advantages of using Cat 5e / Cat 6 Cables -
Cat 5/6 cables can be field-terminated, while HDMI cables cannot. Not only fairly easy not to mention the fact that Cat cables are easy to install and a lot less expensive.
Lots of positive information has been written about using Cat 5e / Cat 6 to run your Audio and Video signals over. Despite the positive data, there have been issues. Here are some simple but important rules integrators should follow when installing any Cat 5 or 6 systems.
Always be aware of timing problems. This involves our old friends, inter and intra pair skew limitations. Cat 5e and Cat6 are twisted pairs and look the same. They are just as easy to pull, pinch, stretch, and distort during installation. In many cases, the damage comes easier than with HDMI cable. These distortions with the cable can cause server timing and ISI (Inter Symbol Interference) issues, which can cause sparkles or intermittent video. Be careful installing Cat 5e Cat 6. No Sharp Turns or right angle or 90 degree turns.
Use Cat 6 if you have the option to choose between the two. Studies have proven Cat 6 will offer almost twice the distance you would normally get with Cat 5e. Plus Cat 6 is built with an inner sheath that keeps each twisted pair separated and flexible meaning that if you do pull it the wrong way, each twisted pair inside can move easier.
NOTICE: Because of the quality of the Cat5e / Cat 6 cables we highly recommend that you use high quality HDMI and Cat5e or Cat 6 Cables. Quality of cables have a direct relationship to how long you can run the cables and still how good the signal will be.

Working with Plasma and LCD Displays
Although not designed to reject interference from plasma or LCD TV's, you can work around this by installing the IR receiver eye in an area that isn't exposed directly to the TV screen - at the back of a bookshelf, on the wall below or next to the TV - somewhere the eye can't "see" the TV image.
Just make sure you still have a direct line of sight from the eye to your normal seating position. The Hidden IR System can be used in a room with a plasma TV or LCD display by installing the IR receiver in an area where it can't "see" the TV image - behind the TV or in a bookcase, for example.
Q. What about Higher frequency Receivers
A. We have seen that some cable boxes like the SA HDTV DVR's and Direct TV HDTV Receivers use a higher frequency than what has normally been found in USA homes. We have seen that some cable boxes like the SA HDTV DVR's and DirectTV H21 use a higher frequency than what has normally been found in USA homes. For this reason we have included a Dual Frequency IR Receiver.
