Octava HDMI to Cat5+IR - 4 IR emitters, need 5!


Established Member
Morning all,

The Octava HDMI to Cat 5+IR box comes with 4 IR emitters, but I've five shelves of equipment.

Anyone know of any way to add more, or replace the 4xIR cable with a 5x or 6x?

I know some of our Installer clients use the likes of Xantech connector blocks to add in additional IR Outputs.

It might be worth asking in the Installer Forum and see what other brands of IR kit they have been using with the Octava Extender gear.

Possibly ask the Mods to move the thread over in a day or so if you don’t get many replies here.

Thanks Joe, as always. I'll take a look at the connectors, and see what the 'custom' lot can recommend.

Almost there with the house purchase, so I can stop asking questions and actually buy something!
