Lindy IR repeater cable

The Lindy IR repeater cable lets you control an audio-visual device, using its existing infra-red (IR) remote control or a universal remote control, in situations where the device is hidden out of sight (for example, in a closed cabinet or behind a television screen).


Why you might want a Lindy IR repeater cable

If you’ve hidden your audio-visual equipment away somewhere out of sight, maybe by putting it in a cabinet or even just behind a television screen, then the chances are you’re going to have a problem controlling it. This problem is caused by the fact that most audio-visual equipment uses infra-red light to receive instructions from its remote control. If you think of your remote control as a torch then you need to be able to shine the torch at your audio-visual equipment in order to get it to work. Obviously you can’t do that if there is a television or cabinet door in the way! The Lindy IR repeater cable solves that problem.

How the Lindy IR repeater cable works

The Lindy IR repeater cable comprises an IR receiver, a USB connector, and and an IR extender cable with one IR emitter. Place the IR receiver in sight of your own remote control, connect the USB connector to a USB port on your television or other audio-visual equipment (or a USB power adapter) and place the IR emitter directly over the IR receiver of the audio-visual device you want to control. Simply operate your remote control whilst pointed at the Lindy IR repeater cable’s IR receiver and the IR emitter will relay the control signal to your equipment.
