What a great idea! Instead of an IR sensor, it uses a tiny RF receiver/transmitter sleeve with a 2/3 AAA rechargeable battery inside that takes the place of a AA or AAA battery within the remote. When you press buttons on your remote, the internal RF signals generated by the remote are picked up and transmitted to the "spaceship" which then sends the signal to your hidden components via an IR emitter. You can control your components with NO sensor in the room! Genius! We just installed a wall-mounted LCD and can hide all of the source components in a closet. Super-clean install. Also, you get two of the rechargeable batteries, so you are never without power. The extra one stays in the "spaceship" ready-to-go.

-Mike W quote

Gave it a 4 for performance only because I could not get the included separate led transmitter to work perfectly no matter what angle or how close/far I put it to the sat receiver eye. But the good news is that the flying source base is located about 15 feet away and at about a 20 degree angle from the sat receiver eye and that works flawlessly! Works with both the 6 year old Directv Tivo remote and the newest one Directv sells. By the way, put sat music on the speakers outside and started walking into the woods behind my house. The remote kept changing the channels up to 130 feet away! Pretty amazing distance.

Works as advertised - this is a must have for anyone hiding audio / video components. Works great with my Receiver's universal remote control. Read More

Gets the job done.

I have a TV with a Time Warner DVR in my den and a TV (no box) in the bedroom. I ran a coax cable from the DVR into the bedroom. I installed an A-B switch in the bedroom so I can use standard cable or the DVR. With this device I am able to operate the DVR in either room. It works great when I point it in the general direction of the DVR through the wall and pretty good otherwise. Not sure why this is as the tranmitter is inside the remote. The only minor downsides are that the little remote dongle doesn't stick to well to my DVR and it's a bit unsitely. It's really cool that the tranmitter goes inside the remote. Read More
