Well it looks like I can't really use the RF extender then. Oh well, I guess it's not much of a pain with 5 controls rather than 1...
And to go back to the original question - line of sight isn't usually all that essential - the signal bounces around.
I haven't seen longer cables for the IR emitters, and I don't know how you'd extend them yourself.
With a 3.5mm (headphone) extension lead - they are only 3.5mm jack plugs - haven't tried it to see how far they will go, but you should get a couple more metres out of them.
I'm confused. Isn't the Harmony 1000 capable of sending RF signals? That would mean that the RF Extender has to be on the outside of your cabinet.
If it is capable of sending RF, can you program the Harmony 1000 that it sends RF to device a, b, c... (through the RF Extender) and IR to device x, y...?
Yes - the 1000 can send IR direct to devices, or its own form of RF to the extender.
No, the extender does not have to be outside the cabinet.
Yes, you can select - using the Hamrony software - for up to eight devices that they are to be controlled by the extender, and by which pair of emitters if those are being used.
The 900's mini-extenders CAN be assigned - on the 900 itself - to devices in the same way.
