Keene RF2IR aerial cable system
The Keene RF2IR product allows IR control signals to be distributed via conventional aerial coax cable. The IR receiver is the same as that used by the common sky-eye type systems although it is not limited to satellite receivers and may be used with almost all IR controllable AV equipment. It allows easy IR control from any remote TV that is connected by aerial cable to the source equipment.
To use simply connect the eye receiver in-line with the TV aerial on the remote TV and the RF2IR in-line with the aerial at the source. IR signals picked up by the eye receiver will be relayed along the aerial cable, decoded by the RF2IR and output to an emitter wand to control the source equipment. The output from the RF2IR can also be fed into an IR distribution amplifier such as the IRBKIT or IR Commander to control multiple items inside a cabinet. In this instance the RF2IR can share the same power source, eliminating the need for multiple adaptors. The DC sockets are wired in parallel so either can be used.
Important! The system makes use of a DC voltage on the aerial cable. This voltage will normally be blocked by a conventional RF distribution amplifier so please ensure that there is a clear signal path between the RF2IR and the remote Skylink receiver. If there is a distribution amplifier in this signal path then either a bypass kit (sold elsewhere) must be fitted, or the distribution amplifier replaced with a compatible alternative RF splitter.
This option is a complete system - no other equipment required - and contains:
SKYLINK REMOTE EYE
POWER SUPPLY (UK)
Close range IR emitter wands
Please note the system will only work with conventional 36KHz to 40KHz IR signals as used by the majority of domestic AV equipment.
Other options are available:
If you would like an IRBKIT distribution system as well, you can also save some money by buying the two together in a kit:

*** Please note that this will not work with IRDA as is used in some Telewest and Pace receiver boxes. Please ring for details if you have a receiver that you think may be IRDA and we can check for you***
