Works great

by Steve on 6/12/2009

I saw the Jensen for sale for $8-9 less with some bad reviews and this unit with no reviews but Buy.com is awesome for returns so I thought I'd take a gamble. I have it on a DVR on one level and the TV elsewhere in the house. Works perfect. Was a piece of cake to set up, nothing else to do but plug it in. Range (DVR IR remote to Remote Extender Transmitter) is about 12 ft max BUT, the DVR IR remote I'm using it with ain't the greatest so I can't say what the effective range would be with a decent quality IR remote. In fact, if I take the DVR remote to the actual DVR, it has a range of only 6-8 ft and is so uni directional, you better point it AT the DVR IR sensor or it doesn't work. None the less, where I'm using it I'm never more than about 10ft away from the TV downstairs and I didn't even know about the 12ft limit until I tested it specifically for this review and I've been using it 2 weeks. Regardless, For what I wanted and how easy it was to install and use, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Only gave the Value 4/5 as I think it's a little pricey for what it is considering all it does is extend IR but everything else, 5/5. Happy with the purchase. Read More

Awesome

Works as described. Very happy with it. The receiver and the transmitter are only about 8 feet apart though, so I do not know how it works further away. Read More
