Xantech IR repeater

I have a Xantech IR repeater controlling 3 components. Some times the red light on the IR receiver stays on for a while and during that time it will not receive any signals. I have not been able to reliably repeat the problem and I haven't been able to work out what makes it stop other than waiting for a while. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem, but it did not start until I connected a second IR receiver to the same connecting block. Xantech's manual for the 291-10 Hidden Link IR Receiver shows that to connect multiple receivers, you just connect corresponding wires to each other, which is what I did. If I disconnect one of the receivers, the other one functions normally.

    i have the same problem with a 791 44 amplified connecting block. It is primarily due to sunlight.

Which receiver do you have?

If you have a 29110, it may be that you have a florescent light or natural sunlight interfering. This may also attributed to an LCD or Plasma TV.

If you have a 29180 it may be plasma or sunlight interference.

If either one of the above is true you may want to consider the 29195.

This may also be true with the two receivers connected together.

Hope this helps.

HP TSGH-IR02 Remote Control how to install


This document pertains to HP Media Center computers with Windows XP, Media Center Edition.Use this document when the remote control does not work correctly with the Media Center software.Troubleshooting the remote controlUse the following items to troubleshoot when the remote control does not respond or when the remote control does not work properly. For example, when a key is pressed the selection moves all the way to the top or bottom of a list, or moves a selection many different places instead of the item you were trying to select.Before attempting these steps, make sure that PC has been updated with all of the latest Windows updates. Many updates for Media Center, like Update Rollup 1 for eHome Infrared Receiver, can be downloaded easily through the Windows Update software Tool.
Make sure that the batteries for the remote control are installed correctly and charged.Make sure that the front of the remote sensor is unobstructed, within a 45-degree range, and is less than 26 feet (8 meters) away. Disconnect all devices that use a USB connection except to the receiver, keyboard, and mouse. Restart the PC, and then try the remote again.If a pressed button repeats itself (sticks), unplug the IR receiver from its USB connection, wait one minute, and plug in the IR receiver. If the pressed buttons continue to repeat, alter the lighting conditions in the room or move the location of the IR receiver. Other remotes and HP Media Center PCs within range can also cause this issue.Try pressing the Enter key on the remote after changing a channel.If the remote control works when using the media center software, but does not work when changing the television channels, re-configure the Media Center software settings for the cable set-top box or satellite receiver
Point the remote control towards the IR receiver and press a button. A faint red light should appear on the IR receiver. If the light appears, then the problem is probably in the software that is using the remote control (most likely the configuration of the Media Center software). Close the software, restart the computer, and then re-open the software to solve this issue.

Troubleshooting the IR receiverThe IR receiver is the small device that receives the signals sent by the remote control. Use the following steps to test and reset the IR receiver.Disconnect the IR receiver from its USB port on the computer, maximize the Media Center window if it is open, and then reconnect the IR receiver. Test again.Point the remote control towards the IR receiver and press a button. A faint red light should appear on the IR receiver. If the light appears, then the problem is probably in the software that is using the IR receiver (most likely the Media Center software). Close the software, restart the computer, and then re-open the software to solve this issue.Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .Click the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.Click the plus sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers.If the eHome Infrared Receiver is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers, Windows is properly detecting the IR receiver. If eHome Infrared Receiver is not in the list, or there is an exclamation mark or a question mark on the device, perform the following until eHome Infrared Receiver appears correct in Device manager:Unplug the end of the USB cable on the IR receiver from the computer and plug it into the same USB port.Plug the end of the USB cable on the IR receiver into the front USB port on the computer.Disconnect all other USB devices, leave the IR receiver plugged in, and then restart the computer. Plug in other USB devices after the IR receiver shows up in device manager.Figure 1: IR receiver listing in Device Manager

How to program a rca rcr451 remote


1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control
(TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
or cable box).
2. Locate the enclosed Code Lists.
Find the list for the component
you wish to program. Find your
component’s brand. You will see a
listing of four-digit codes for each
brand. If your brand isn’t listed,
use the Manual Code Search
method to program the remote
control. (Refer to page 6 for
Manual Code Search method.)
3. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
wish to program. The LED
indicator light turns on and remains
on. If you release the component
key any time during the Direct
Code Entry procedure, the LED
indicator light blinks four times,
and the process is exited.
4. While holding down the component
key, consult the Code Lists for the
four-digit code that corresponds to
your component’s brand and use the
number keys (0-9) on the keypad to
enter it. While you are pressing the
numbers, the LED indicator
light turns off.
5. After the fourth number is entered,
the LED indicator light turns on. At
this time, release the component key.
If the LED indicator light turns off,
you have entered a valid code and
have followed the correct procedure
for Direct Code Entry.
If you enter a code number that is
not in the Code Lists or you do not
follow all of the steps for Direct
Code Entry, the LED indicator light
blinks four times when the
component key is released. This is an
indication that a programming error
has occurred. In that case, repeat the
Direct Code Entry process from step
3 and try the next code listed.
Throughout the programming
of each key, be sure to keep the remote
pointed at the IR sensor of the
component you are currently
programming the remote to control.
6. To confirm that the component key
is programmed with the correct
code for maximum functionality,
test the component. Attempt to
control a variety of the
component’s functions with the
remote. If some of the features of
your components do not work, try
programming the remote with a
different code in the list until you
find the code that allows the
remote to control the majority of
your component’s functions.
Different codes can provide
different levels of functionality.

Need codes for rcr 460 remote


1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control
(TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
or cable box).
Note: If you press an invalid key
during the Manual Code Search,
the remote does not respond and
the LED indicator light does not
blink. If you do not press a valid
Manual Code Search key (TV,
VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL, ON·OFF,
GO BACK), the search times out
after two minutes. When the
search times out, the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off. The last
programmed code under that
component key is retained.
2. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
wish to program. The LED indicator
light turns on and remains on.
3. While holding the component
key down, press and hold the
ON·OFF key. The LED indicator
light turns off.
4. After holding down both keys
for three seconds, the LED
indicator light turns back on.
5. Release both keys. The LED
indicator light remains on.
Throughout the
programming of each key, be sure
to keep the remote pointed at the
IR sensor of the component you
are currently programming the
remote to control.
6. Press and release the ON·OFF key
repeatedly until your component
turns off. Each time you press the
ON·OFF key, the LED indicator
light blinks, and the next code in
the list is sent. This process
continues until all of the codes in
the Code Lists have been searched.
If your component turns off, you
have found the correct code. (If it
cycles through and the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off, all codes have been
searched. The Manual Code Search
method is exited.)

Where is the IR sensor on a Bose 3-2-1 Series II?


I believe I've found the IR sensor. By shining a flash light on the various parts of the normally opaque shield over the front of the Bose, I was able to spot what I believe to be the sensor on the extreme right end of the shield, vertically centered. Later today I hope to verify this by connecting everything and using the remote through the Xantech. If it turns out that I'm wrong, I'll post again.

IR frequency determination


The remote could be using RF, which is why your Niles equipment cannot handle it. There is no way to duplicate the RF or convert it to an IR signal.

If the remote is using IR, make sure the batteries are full and the light is low when you are learning the codes with tne Niles equpment. There is no way if it's IR that the freq is > 100.
