Video sender IR Connection
« on: February 09, 2006, 04:27:15 PM »

I have a x10 video sender with the remote
that was free. My satellite receiver is
Coolsat.  I'm trying to connect from the
sender to my receiver but i don't see where
i can plug in the IR connection to my
receiver.  Does that mean i can't switch
channels on my TV? is there any other way?
what do i have to do?

You have the sender kit vk54a with free
ur73a-2 five in one remote?
You need date on how to connect the
satalites receivers video to the sender or
trying to get the remote to control the
satalite receiver?

I want to get the remote to switch the
channels on the satellite receiver, but i
have no where to connect the IR wire to my
satellite receiver. does this mean i can't
do it? or is there another way I can do this?

OK Think I got the picture. Does the
satalite receiver have it's own remote that
is IR? Wire for IR?
Do you have an IR receiver that has a wire
on it thet needs to be connected to
something?

yes it has it's own remote controller forthe
satellite. the video sender has it's IR
output and i need to connect it to the SAT
input but it doesn't seem to have an IR
connection on it.

you know what, i think the remote is LED.
it's a coolsat pro 4000 receiver. it might
not be IR.

OK I downloaded the manual for the Video
Sender. The manual said RCA DBS II or later.
So I doubt it will do anything for you; if
you have no such input.
