How to Connect an IR Remote Extender to a DirecTV Remote


Extend the range of your Direct TV remote control with a simple infrared (IR) remote control extender. An IR remote extender set (transmitter and receiver) repeats the infrared signal generated by your Direct TV remote control--effectively increasing the range of the remote control. And the plug-and-play nature of IR remote control extender sets means that there are no time-consuming connections to establish or synchronization procedures to worry about.

Things You'll Need

  • Wireless Remote Extender (transmitter and receiver)
  • Place the receiver near your Direct TV receiver, keeping the receiver within its specified range limit. Point the front of the receiver towards the front of your Direct TV receiver.

  • Plug the tip of the receiver's AC adapter into the AC power port on the back of the receiver, and then plug the transformer end of the cable into a power outlet. Raise the receiver's antenna.

  • Place the transmitter within its prescribed range of the receiving unit, connect the AC power supply, and raise its antenna.

  • Point your remote control at the transmitter to change your channels--as opposed to aiming at the front of your receiver.

  • Use your IR remote control extender set for other out-of-range devices, like DVD players and stereos.
