This handy IR kit is ideal for A/V components hidden away in a rack or cabinet or even another room. Use your remote to control your home theater devices without having to get up and open a cabinet door every time your want to stream a movie or play a video game. The IR-5000's 2-piece design allows for the hub of the IR system to stay hidden inside the equipment cabinet while the tiny IR receiver head is placed in an inconspicuous location. Keep in mind that unit is designed to have a single receiver placed close to your TV. A hard-wired connection for up to four emitters can be placed directly on the components that you want to control. The emitters are placed over the actual receiver sensor of the component.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Works well, but...

This unit works as described, but beware: It is not like the old school IR repeaters that were built like tanks. The Receiver wire can not be extended. This means if you plan on running IR back to a closet or rack, you will need to extend each of the IR blaster wires, NOT the Receiver wire! Doing so will render the product useless. You can extend hte whole thing with one Cat5, but I still had to keep the power suppy at the TV end, not ideal.
Pros:Low Power Consumption
Cons:Hard To Set Up
