[C200] IR extender??

[C200] IR extender??
Ok im trying to stick to my Harmony remote, i love it, its the best thing that ever happened to me this year. So after looking in my junk drawer (come on, we all have one of those where electronics disappear into after a time) i found the IR Blaster cable for my Samsung DVDR 357.

I remember using this cable back in the day to set the DVDR to automatically change the channel on the Cable Box to record programs. Do this cable works as a transmitter and receiver? It looks like a standard 3.5 headphone jack on 1 end and has an IR LED on the other end.

I searched around on Google trying to verify if the IR Blaster and an IR extender cable is the same because they both look the same. I found nothing that could help me verify.

Is a IR Blaster cable compatible with the C200?
If not, will the IR extender be available at the same time when the C200 is ready for purchase?
What will be the cost of the extender?
Is it an exclusive extender or will any 3rd party extender work?
IR extender Recommendations?

RE: [C200] IR extender??
I would like to know that too, I have a IR extender that came together with a HP media center IR-receiver.
It has a 3.5mm mono mini-jack plug.
Will I be able to use that with the C-200?

$12!!! cheap Big GrinBig Grin
Ok, if a IR remote and C200 is ordered at the same time will that be separate shipping charges or just 1 rate? For now if my budget allows it im looking to order 2 C200 units with an IR extender.

I hoped that the IR receiver go into the basic package. I guess if the remote+receiver is only 12$ then, the receiver shouldn't be more than 2$. Who will need the IR receiver probably won't need the remote. Since I guess they like me, will use it with an universal remote. So for me this makes no sense at all. Because that means I now will have two remote that I won't use. Undecided

Media player 02: PCH-C200, 320 GB 2,5" Samsung HDD, LG CH10-LS20 BD, HDMI, CAT5e wired.
Display: Samsung LE-40R88BD
A/V receiver: Yamaha RXV-630 coax conn.
NAS: Synology CS407e, DS411j 8 TB (RAID5)

It do make a little sense because if you use a Harmony and the remote the C-200 is not in the database what will you use for the IR learning??

It just might be the time for me to go and do something illegal to get a quick $700 Angle.

Hmm also got to find a buyer for 2 A-100 Sad

Quote:got to find a buyer for 2 A-100

The refurbished A-100s for 100 dollars a piece from Popcornhour are still selling like hotcakes. I don't think you will find it difficult to find buyers if you drop the price for each unit another 10-20 dollars.

Media tank:A-100 & C-200
TV:Panasonic TH-50PY800MT (HDMI)
Audio:Logitech Z-5500 (Coaxial)

RE: [C200] IR extender??
Just a quick note for all users:-

- Refurbished A-100 will go to out of stock soon and we won't resell it again. Go checkout while stock last...

- For the C-200 IR extender, what was Werner say it true as we will bundle a IR kit (IR remote and receiver) which cost only $12. It will available bundle with C-200 package and also sell as standalone order. Will launch together with C-200.

- No separate IR remote control and IR receiver sell.

RE: [C200] IR extender??
Regarding the IR Receiver, where on the C200 will this attach to? Is there space for the IR receiver to be mounted in the front somewhere or will it hang off a USB port?

RE: [C200] IR extender??
There is a plug for it on the back of the device so I imagine it will be on a wire.

Something like

RE: [C200] IR extender??
Will the C-200 be able to be powered up with the IR remote, as it can be with the RF remote?

Thanks.
