IR over HDMI Control KitThe problem with locating your audio/video devices in a closed cabinet or another room is that it breaks the line of sight that the remote control relies on. PI Manufacturing's IR control kit turns any HDMI cable into an IR controller, allowing you to keep all your IR devices, such as a Blu-ray player in a closed cabinet or in another room while still being able to control it from your display device located in your central home theater room, such as a HDTV.
Our SolutionPI Manufacturing's IR control kit allows the user to control audio/video devices that are not in direct line of sight of the remote control. It does this by using the HDMI cable's CEC channel to transmit the IR signal. You can switch between CEC or IR mode. To connect the IR control kit, place both ends of the HDMI cable with the supplied HDMI IR adapters. Connect the IR TX pigtail to the HDMI IR adapter at the source end (Blu-ray player, etc.) and then the IR RX pigtail to the HDMI IR adapter at the display end (HDTV). The IR control kit allows extensions up to 325 feet and can also be used on HDMI switches, splitters, or HDMI extenders. NOTE: When the source and display both support the CEC function, and you need the CEC function, you can switch to CEC mode (CEC mode is most often used in settings where the remote controller controls both the TV and DVD). In most cases, if one of the devices does not support the CEC function, and you need to control the DVD from the display end, then you switch to the IR mode. YouTube Video Demo

|Finally able to hide my cable box|
by Tmicc on 2015-06-23
I used the IR over HDMI to hide my Cable Box in my dresser drawer to make the TV setup look better without the cable box. The IR over HDMI cable worked great and was easy to setup. I connected the cords, let the cable box reset and I was able to change my cable channel with the sensor while my cable box was hidden. If the cord came with some instructions it would make it a little more easier to setup. I didn't know at first that I had to reset the cable box for the connections to work. Great value. I will be buying another one and a friend wants to buy one for himself also.
