To my knowledge, it is an IR remote, but I myself don't have an extender/repeater to try out. I have found that a lot of the time the receiver is very slow to respond, even when only sitting a couple of feet away and pointing the damn remote right at the receiver. So much for the "fastest channel change." Yeah, once it finally registers!Just wanted to double check if the remote uses Infrared and if it is has anyone tried using a IR extender/repeater?
For use with -2- devices: All brands of A/V device's and remote control (38- 56kHz). Including ATT-Uverse model VIP1225 and VIP1216 (VIP2000 series and IPN4320 we suggest our IRP-BU kit. We have found that other Uverse boxes including 1225 and 2000 series work best with the IRP-BU) , Scientific Atlanta STB's, and name brand A/V Receivers.
