Infrared over HDMI Cable Dual-Band Adapter Kit
The Accell Infrared over HDMI Dual Band Adapter Kit uses your existing HDMI cable to transmit an infrared control signal. The IR adapter kit transmits the IR signal over the length of the HDMI cable for control of a connected device, such as a DVD player or set-top box. The IR adapter kit includes two small IR adapters fitted with a female and male HDMI port. The IR adapters, using its female HDMI port, plugs onto each end of your existing HDMI cable. The included IR receiver or IR transmitter, depending on the direction of the IR signal, plugs into the 3.5mm input/output jack found on each IR adapter. The IR adapter kit is dual-band compatible supporting IR signals from both IR bands (33kHz-60kHz).
Setup Example: The included IR receiver module, which can be adhered to the side of your TV using the included double sided adhesive, receives an IR signal from your DVD player's remote control. For example, while watching TV, you have decided to pause your DVD movie and the DVD player is located in the other room. The IR signal from the DVD player's remote control travels through the IR receiver and into the IR adapter, which is connected to the TV's HDMI cable. The IR signal travels through the HDMI cable to the IR adapter located on the source (DVD player) end of the HDMI cable. The IR adapter sends the IR signal through to the IR transmitter. The IR transmitter beams the IR signal at the IR sensor of your DVD player, pausing the movie. Since the IR adapters are bi-directional, for applications where you want to control the TV from the video source, plug the IR receiver into the IR adapter at the video source. Plug the IR transmitter, pointed at the TV's IR sensor, into the IR adapter on the display side.
The IR adapter uses the often unused CEC channel of your HDMI cable to transmit the IR signal through the length of the cable. To activate the IR adapter, disabling the CEC functionality, toggle the switch on each IR adapter to "IR" mode. To activate CEC, which will disable the IR function, toggle the switch on each IR adapter to the "CEC" position.
