I have the one for all urc-9910 bo1 rf/if extender with my viewing area in the living room and my equipment in another area.

I'd always have trouble getting this to work reliably. It seemed as though during the day it was a lot worse. I'd have to hit each key a couple of times before it would work. The rf had to go through the walls and I just couldn't find a good place to locate the receiver. Some spots in my viewing room would simply not work, so I would look to rest the remote on a table where it was working well. That kinda defeats the purpose of a hand held remote, however.

I actually bought 3 of these units so I would have spares and I program them with extenders. I leave the remotes at a couple of places so there's always one handy to skip over an annoying commercial. I use only one rf receiver.

Anyway, here's the tip Smile

Each comes with a 3-4 foot plug in ir cable so you can place the ir next to some unit in case the receiver isn't doing a good job where it's at.

I found that I could splice 50 feet of cheap radio shack speaker wire into this cable and so I could have the receiver in my viewing room and set up the little ir transmitter next to the equipment in my equipment room. I don't remember the guage, but it's not the heavy kind, it's the see through stuff for $5 per 50 feet.

I cut the wire in the middle and spliced in the 50 feet of wire. I then run this from the receiver unit, which I can place almost anywhere in my viewing area, since there's no longer any walls or obstructions between my remotes and the receiver, so it works great.

I placed the other end of the wired extender about 3 feet from my equipment in the other room and now it works perfectly.

Hope this is useful to someone. It's my attempt at a thanks for this forum.
