I am using this for almost month and no problem so far. I am using it to control my cable box which is in the basement from the master bedroom.
Installation just involved plugging in the two power cords provided. The output from the receiver is strong enough that I didn't need to use the additional emitters that were included. It controls my Cisco Video DVR box, my Onkyo AV receiver, and my Samsung Blu-Ray player. Fantastic product.
Installed in a jiffy and works from the Basement (receiver) to my bedroom (2 floors up) without a hitch!
Very happy to have "wirelessly" solved my issue.
It works but devices need to be very close to the receptor. For me, over 2 meters it doesn't work. Also, the two devices need to be aligned in straight line from your tv and the other one from your remote control. You do not have a room for error (I would say about 10 degree). It does the job, I am glad to have it, but for the money I would have liked to have a little more reliable device.
The remote extender kit works well for a theatre room! Having the Copenents out of site looks sharp. The AR remote control extender makes this possible. It was simple to install and has a slim design.
It was simple to connect the sticky pad on the eye of my components. No problems with sending signals to box. Great price and recommend this product for those who would like a clean look without the clutter of audio/video boxes. I connected a 3D samsung bluray player and Rogers Nextbox HD PVR
This product is terrible. It works on its own time. Somedays it is fine, others it is impossible. I would strongly recommend looking for an alternative. This product is so bad I'm posting my first review ever!
The item is small plastic housing with an extendable metal antenna. The transmitter actually picks up the remote's Infrared (IR) signal from the side without the antenna on it, not the front, that has the IR logo. AR explained the manual was in error. The unit's range of up to 100 feet is with no obstructions, pure Line of Sight. Adding wood studded walls reduces the range by 10 feet for each wall, aluminum studded walls triples that number, and Re-Bar Cement walls and floors reduces the range to about 10 feet, according to Acoustic Research. The units Radio path is quite narrow as a person walking through the path is enough to cut the signal to zero. So either avoid placing the items where people will walk or place the devices above them. Sending commands through the units takes a bit of time, so don't expect rapid changes like volume, programming, etc. Take about 3 to 5 seconds per command.
These units are very similar to the way the first WiFi Networks worked, very low powered, narrow bandwidth, and slow signal.
