    I'm sorry that I don't understand one piece of this set up.

    Do you place the transmitter near the satellite box or by the TV that you are trying to get to receive the satellite signal?

I have also purchased one of these over ebay without a manual. I have gotten it to work as an extender from my basement satellite receiver to the upstairs living room theater TV. I use a channel converter to remote the RF audio and video and this Jensen IR remote to allow control from the living room.

There should be five items in this set. Two dome shaped items, two power supplies and a hockey puck looking IR emitter.

First locate the dome that says transmitter on it. This you want to put at the remote location. This is the dome that you point your remote control at to do your bidding. Make sure its little antenna is extended and the power supply is plugged in. You should be looking at the dome with the antenna tail behind it. The range that you can operate this seems to be somewhat limited. More on this later.

Second, locate the receiver dome. It says receiver on it and has two plug jacks, one for the power supply and one for the IR emitter. Don't worry about that yet, you don't need to plug it in. Raise its antenna, connect its power and set this in front of the devise that is being controlled remotely. You do not need the hockey puck for this to relay your IR beam. Make sure it faces the device being controlled. The antenna tail should face away from the device being controlled.

You should now be able to relay the IR signal. Start by being close to the transmitter. Try a simple on off to verify you have a connection. You can then work at moving away a bit to get an idea on the range capability. I have read several reviews that say this range is very limited, maybe only 5 feet ! I am not sure if this is true in all cases, but be aware of it. Secondly experiment with the receiver placement to get reliable relay to controlled device.

The hockey puck can be used to put the signal in a closed in spot like behind a door in a cabinet etc. In this case, plug it into the receiver and stick it over the IR led on the item being controlled. By the way, I have not gotten this to work on the unit I have. Not sure why. I am also clueless on the visible red LED in the receiver. It seems to glow when I pass my hand around the antenna and does flash when a signal is relayed. It would be nice to know what this is intended to do.

I hope this helps.

If anyone has the manual, I would be interested as well.

I have placed my receivers in a cabinet. I know there is some type of booster I can hook up so my remote will work with the door closed. Can you tell me where I could find one and what it is called?

Infrared is not working


Is the RF extender working, or is it just the IR out the front of the remote?
Try a reboot by pulling the battery and power cycling the extender.

My Harmony 890 remote seems to be working fine, but I am trying to use the wireless extender for my Receiver and DVD player in the closet. However, nothing seems to work when I try this.


Make sure you assigned your devices to the Extender. This can be done by the following steps:

1) Go to "Device" tab
2) Beside the "Add device" there should be an "Assign devices to..." or something to that extent
3) Select which devices to be controlled by extender!
4) Update extender and remote - make sure you do the extender first!

Harmony 890 Pro will not pair with Xbox360


The RF signal is on the XBOX is used for the controllers only.

When using the Harmony 890 with a 360, you will have to use it as an IR (infrared) device. That is the only way to use a remote with the 360. If you have an extra port on your RF extender, you can place the end on the remote senor on the 360 (located under the eject button).

I set these remotes up weekly, it is a product I recommend to people all the time!

But again, the only way to setup a remote with the 360, is to use the IR port as a standard IR remote. Since the controllers run off RF, the learn function will not work, unless you already have 360 remote control to use to do the learn function.

Hope that offers some insight. This information can also be verifies at Microsoft XBOX 360's FAQ page.

Wireless remote control extender


Possibly your new equipment doesn't use IR (infared) as the media for the remote. I have used the pyramid and different versions of it for DirecTV/Dish and most everything else for years with no major problems. occasionally a unit will fail, but that happens. If the red light blinks on the "transmitter" (no antenna) it should indicate that it is receiving IR from the remote. The "receiver" (antenna) has to be oriented correctly in front of the unit to be controlled. I put the receiver no closer than 5' to the unit. The signal coming out is a cone shape and it's easier to aim the further away you are. As a test, you could try using the remote to control a stereo or something else, even a fan. If the remote has a led or a dark red plastic cap on the front end, it should be an IR unit.
