I am looking for an IR extender cable (receiver) that will work with the Cisco IPV5050. Since the box has a dedicated aux IR extender it seems I shouldn't have to buy a full kit but rather just the cable. I tried https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=8060 and it rarely works. It is odd but it will work for approximately 5 seconds and then not work for 30 seconds. I have tried different distances as well as pointing directly at the IR receiver.
Has anyone found a specific product that will work with this receiver?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks, I did see this discussion and it seems like https://www.amazon.ca/gp/
Just an update on this for people that will be getting this box or already own it.
I tried ordering a IR extender from Sewell and it did not work at all, I thought I would give it a try as the frequency range seemed to be within what was needed.
I then tried ordering the IR extender from the link that was provided earlier https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01BY19HH0 and this one works perfectly. As well the shipping time was only 8 business days despite amazon stating that it would take much longer. Much better option at $10 and only one cord then the complicated kits that others suggest for more like $80
I can confirm that the IR Extender in the link provided works with the Cisco IPV5050 and from another thread someone else has confirmed it works for the IPV6015
