IR Repeater Equipment
To have HT gear out of sight requires
a means to receive the IR signal from the remote.
This is achieved though Xantech IR repeater equipment. A IR sensor
at the front of the room received the IR signal. It then sends it
via a wire to the IR connection block (Red +12v, Black ground, White
IR signal). The connection block then distributes it to the IR emitters
attached. The emitters then repeat the signal to the IR
receiver on the corresponding piece of HT gear. In some cases an
emitter is not needed and the IR signal can be inputed directly from
the connection block into the HT gear via a 3.5mm mono
cable,. This is the case with the Rotel Processor and Denon 2900 DVD
player. Pictures clockwise show:
