Re: IR Extender Blows Box

I recently installed a Motorola IR Extender. No, I didn't have the same "blown box" problem described by the OP.

When I was attempting to set everything up, my channels were scrolling at lightning speed. VZ Tech Support had no solution.

I needed a bit more cable length (than the 30" Motorola cable from Verizon) so I purchased an inexpensive audio cable extender at Radio Shack. The 1/8" (3.5mm) male end of the new cable is slightly shorter than the original IR Extender. However, now I have no flakiness and the system works as desired.

A side benefit of the IR Extender, that I didn't expect, is that I don't have to aim the remote directly at the receiver. It works great, even without line-of-sight alignment.
