Question about Televison & Video
I have a remote control for controlling a Sirius S5 DVR security camera recorder. I've asked the company I purchased the recorder from what the frequency the remote control transmits at and they don't know and say to have the remote tested to determine the frequency. I use Xantech "IR over coax" equipment to control my satelite receiver from another room and works great for years. It handles IR frequencies in the range of 30KHz thru 100KHz. The Sirius S5 remote will not work with the Xantech equipment therefore the remote must be operating outside the 30k-100khz range. How do I find out the frequency so I can provide control from another room? Would converting IR to RF and back to IR with an "IR repeater" work?
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.
