Unfortunately for my particular setup my AVR is in a tall cabinet and the IR sensor is located directly behind a vertical oak door beam. The manual states that if line-of-sight is impractical, an infrared remote repeater can be used with the rear panel IR connector. The connection point is the "in local" on the rear panel which looks to require a 3.5mm stereo jack plug. I went to my local RadioSh**k and they sold me a wireless IR Remote Extender...obiviously this is not what I really need. These little cubes with antenna and power cords to be plugged in for both transmitter and receiver to be placed in various locations that just don't work for me...this product will be returned. I did an internet search for IR Remote Repeater and I find some things called IR Remote "emitters" which consist of what looks to be a 3.5mm plug and a short cord with a small object at the end. Some of these I've read, they say to place them directly over the remote sensor window on the Receiver This doesn't seem right either! I would think that you could plug this device into the rear "in-local" and place this device at the end of the cord in a place in the front of the entertainment cabinet that the hand held remote control IR would not be obstructed. Can anbody give me a link to this device that the Arcam manual describes on page E-6? I just need to see a pic and description so I can order one knowing that it is the correct part. Thanks for any help in advance.
