Extending an IR Cable - how do i do it?


Active Member
I have 2 ir cables that need extending else they will be behind my screen.

All the other cables sit at the back of the room and are fed from an IR extender which sits just under the room.

Anyone have any ideas what the cable is thats needed. it looks like 4 wires and goes into something resembling a phone connector that plugs into a telephone base.

I use Cat5 to extend IR... but I guess you could use any 2 core cable to extend IR


It depends on what extender you have.
Most have a simple two-core cable and the sort of plugs that are used for mono audio, so four core cable with phone plugs is rather unusual.
