Ultra TV and IR Blaster

Is there anything special I have to do, or a particular cord I need to use in order to get the IR Blaster port to work? I've tried using the IR Blaster that came with the WOW supplied Digital Adapter and it isn't working. I'm hoping to put the player box in a closet.

I haven't looked at any of the documentation, but I've only seen the generic IR blasters with the mono stereo port. However, since it's a blaster, it won't actually receive anything. You'll want a receiver for that; a blaster is for controlling something else through IR, like a VCR or DVD player, etc.

I tried one that came with a remote extender and it didn't work either. Not sure if its usable or not.

Ah, ok. Thanks guys. I will buy a powered IR repeater in this case.
