I just upgraded to the new Verizon Arris VMS 1100 box in my living room and need to get some kind of Infrared Extender for the unit. Our cable box is inside built in bookshelves/cabinets and we want to keep the door of the unit shut. Right now we have to keep it open for the remote to work with the cable box and are looking for the best way to make it work with keeping the bookshelf doors shut.
I found this IR Extender on Amazon, but I am not sure if it is capabtible with the new Arris VMS 1100: http://www.amazon.com/Infrared-Receiver-Extender-Description-Compatibility/dp/B002JSDHCY
Does anyone know if that one will work or if there are other options anyone can recommend so that we can keep our door closed in our media unit?
Thanks hlppls - I think you are referring to this https://teleproducts.verizon.com/fios/index.cfm/eh/dtlsfromhome/419 which is a new extender
I dont want to add a new extender - but was wondering if this could work if I attached the emitter from my existing system to the input
I plugged mine in, and got no results, seemed to disable to front IR, and did no respond at all
Am I missing something
