Description

Control all of your home theater video sources, and anything else that uses a standard IR remote control from behind walls and other obstructions.

Extend and Route Remote Control Signals

The BlastIR is designed to get your remote control's signal to where it needs to go. Since remote control signals (IR) need "line-of-sight" to work, you will need this extender if the equipment you're trying to control is not in sight.

How This Works

This kit includes an IR receiver, a connecting block (which also serves as a signal repeater), and IR emitters. The IR receiver is a small sensor that you can mount on your TV's bezel or anywhere else in the room where you will want to point your remote. It is small and very easy to hide, but must be in line-of-sight to wherever you will be using your remote control from. This receiver sends the signal over 3.5mm mini stereo wire to the connecting block.

The connecting block then repeats and sends the same signal through all IR emitters connected to the block. Each emitter sends out the same IR signal to your devices, and you can tape them directly to your equipment or simply fix them to a nearby shelf or wall pointing at your devices.


RC-MM Support - The Pro Difference

Like other products in the BlastIR family this unit supports dual band IR signals but it doesn’t stop there, the Pro supports RC-MM Protocol.

RC-MM is a new IR protocol that was developed to be used with wireless keyboards and mice. The protocol uses much shorter waves than a typical IR signal and uses less power. Due to the shorter wave lengths and lower power most IR sensors are unable to process the signal. The BlastIR Pro uses high fidelity wideband IR sensors to process this protocol.

PLEASE NOTE: This product has been known to have compatibility issues with certain U-verse, Motorola VIP, and Cisco Explorer cable boxes. Please contact us if you have any questions about your setup.

Works With Some Caveats

I purchased this to connect to my Denon receiver and although it works, at times, I can be directly in front of the IR sensor and it does not respond. It's intermittent but still a nuisance especially when relaxing on the sofa.

Blast IR Pro

Replaced a wireless unit that worked sometimes this was simple to install and works great! Particularly like the wire extensions you offer as I had a considerable distance problem. Great product.

Part Number: SW-30458
For Denon AVR-X1400H Receiver

Pros: Worked for my Denon AVR-X1400H Receiver using the "IR Input" on it's rear panel. The receiver was located inside a cabinet thus needed an IR extender.Cons: Have to be within ~15' of IR detector for the remote's signal to be detected.Other: Wanted to use the IR Input on rear panel of the Denon receiver instead of mounting an emitter on the front panel. Used a 3.5mm Stereo Audio, Male to Male Patch Cable from the BlastIR repeater to the Denon IR Input. IT WORKED!
