1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: SImple to hook up
Hdmi worked perfectly...

Cons: I purchased two of these. Neither of them worked when it came to the IR

Other Thoughts: I read the review that the sensor wasn't the greatest which honestly as long as it worked i wouldn't have cared. Purchased two units and neither of them would transmit IR signal. Big disappointment

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The IR of devise needs to be within the frequency range for IR of this product. The IR blast cable must be placed directly over the IR emitter on your devise. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: POE for receiver unit. IR transmitter included.

Cons: IR doesn't pick up as well as most modern devices. It's shaped like a bubble but, it only works when aiming at the top of the bubble.

Other Thoughts: Easy to hide. Inexpensive. Removes the need for set-top boxes and their mess of wires and power cords but at the cost of two network ports mounted somewhere near the receiver. I put the set-tops in a cabinet in another room and the receiver in the wall. All I have in my living area is my TV now.
