Title: VK82A (video sender) IR Question
Post by: sbhatcher on July 10, 2008, 03:04:57 PM
Here's a question that I do not see covered here:

I have successfully set up my video senders, and can control the DSS/DVR box that it is attached to via the IR from the other room where the video receiver is.  Now, what I want to know is can the video sender also receive the IR signals and pass them on to the remote emitters?

I ask because I have my DSS box in a closed cabinet and would like to use the remotes with the doors closed.  Seeing as I can control it from another room it seems like this wouldn't be hard, but it appears that the video sender doesn't have an IR receiver built in, is this the case?
