      when i opened it i noticed it's not the greatest quality so i was nervous but it set up easy & works perfectly, granted its only been one day & i only have 1 DirecTV HD box hooked up but it allowed me to have a beautiful setup free of boxes & wires!

      Comments about RadioShack Wired IR Repeater System:

      This product works great. It was easy to install and has great range. For best results, tape the sensors from the IR repeater directly over the sensors of each device that is going to be controlled (I just used a small piece of black electrical tape) - this will ensure that the signal from the repeater is being seen by the equipment to be controlled. I looked at a lot of different IR repeaters and was hesitant to buy this one because of the negative reviews, but am extremely happy with this product.

            Best Uses

              Comments about RadioShack Wired IR Repeater System:

              Needed it to relay through a wall for a total run of about 12'. Just moved and wanted to get tv and stuff up and running but didn't have a place for components except cabinet or behind wall. This seemed to fit the bill and when I tested it it seemed to work fine. Once we started using it, not so much. Range for receiver is about 6' and within about a 10° beam width. Which doesn't work. MUCH shorter and unreliable range than components that were moved. I'll be returning it.

                Did not work out of the box, but what is worse is that you can not tell until you have a tech check because there are no indicators! Do not buy!

                Set up is easy.
                Price is just enough.
                It did operate the cable box with cabinet shut.
                It only worked at a four foot range. My couch was at ten feet. Disappointed.

                    The item failed to activate the receiver on 8 of 10 attempts. The advertised range is 23' and I had to be within 6" on 2 of 10 successful activations. DO NOT purchase this device. It has only a 90 day guarantee. That should tell you about the manufacturers confidence in their product.

                      Best Uses

                        Comments about RadioShack Wired IR Repeater System:

                        Needed a good IR extender that works with the Fios 6416 cable box. I read in some forum online that this one worked for the commenter. SO glad the person left that comment. I was setting up a back room TV for my mother, and the very expensive brand I bought somewhere else did not work...at more than twice the price! This one comes with long cables; and an extension cable for the micro cord; however, you may want to get a male to female extension cable also for the 3.5 mini (size of your mp3 stereo headphone cord jack). I wanted to keep all adapters in one cabinet and run long cables to it.

                        Nice, big IR receiver face, cleverly constructed. And, unlike the expensive brand in which you must tape the transmitter lead directly on the IR bulb, with this one you can place the transmitter leads as far away as 1.6 ft from the device you wish to control! This ensures it will respond (30 degree emitting angle).

                        Lastly, I was surprised, all six transmitter leads go into the same jack! They're all connected whether or not you use them.

                          Used this to hide boxes but still use remote. Worked great for 4 days and then stopped with no warning. unplugged, plugged, check all wires, nothing? May need a new receiver, will have to contact RS to see how they will react. Hope to get good service as it seems to be a good potential product.

                              Comments about RadioShack Wired IR Repeater System:

                              This is a very cheaply made IR repeater. The housing for the repeater is made out of plastic. The IR receiver is flimsy, and provides no sort of indicator that it's receiving a signal.

                              I never got the unit to actually work, and ended up ordering another solution that was of much better quality, and cost the same. Save your money - look elsewhere.
