C200: Infrared blaster, IR cable?

C200: Infrared blaster, IR cable?

I have a known-good blaster module that is controlling other items in my cabinet. I installed a mono 1/8" cable into the back of the C200 and an extra port on the blaster - the port was being used previously, so I know it is good. When this is done, the UHF remote stops working as expected. However my Logitech Harmony 700 does not work. I have selected the IRK-200 in the Logitech setup and that has gone fine. But no matter what I do, the C-200 ignores everything. I have of course successfully updated the Harmony after each change.

My question is whether the IRK-200 kit actually does something special at the IR receiver end? I could get the IRK-200 and tape one of my IR emitter's to it, but obviously prefer the straight cable approach.

I've read the Wiki on this and followed the instructions. I've also tried other iterations in terms of the C-200 specifically. Syabas C-200, Popcorn Hour C-200 - no combination works.

Any help would be much appreciated. thanks in advance!!

straight cable approach will not work, you need to build a IR receiver cable as per the wiki and tape the IR blaster to it

All advice is supplied packaged by intellectual weight, and not by volume. Contents may settle slightly in transit.

ah, thanks! I had no idea about the cable requirements. I just ordered the IRK kit and will stick a blaster to it, much easier. thanks again!
