The IRCM-DV+ fits into a four space high (2.8” H x 3.5” W,
7.1 cm H x 8.9 cm W) opening in an Extron Architectural
Adapter Plate, interface, or distribution amplifier.
The IRCM-DV+ control module replicates the front panel
controls on both a VCR and a DVD player, and it uses infrared
commands to control those devices.
The IRCM-DV+ is referred to as “module”, “IRCM”,
“IRCM-DV+”, and “control module” in this manual.
The MLC to which the IRCM-DV+ is connected must
have MLC firmware version 1.04 or higher in order to
work with the IRCM-DV+. To set up the IRCM-DV+
you must use MediaLink Control Software version
2.0 or higher.

both a VCR and a DVD player.
Gray, black, or white faceplate — The module is offered in
three shades for integration into a variety of
environments.
System expandability — One other IRCM-DV+ or up to two
other control modules (IRCMs, ACMs, RCMs) can be
daisy chained together in any combination and connected
to an MLC to provide basic A/V source and room control
from several locations.
Furniture and wall mountability — The IRCM-DV+ can be
mounted onto or in furniture or walls if installed in an
optional mounting plate (AAP 102, AAP 104) or in an

UL Requirements
1.
This unit is not to be connected to a centralized DC power
source or used beyond its rated voltage range.
2.
The IRCM-DV+ must be installed in a UL listed junction
box.
2
Communications connectors — Use these connectors to connect
control modules together and to connect them to the MLC and
to an optional IR Link infrared repeater. Both 3.5 mm, 5-pole
connectors function the same way, so they are interchangeable.
1
The UL approved electrical wall box (junction box) is not
included with the control module; the installer is
responsible for obtaining and installing the box.
3.
Install a captive screw connector (see pages 2-5 and 2-6) on one
end of an Extron Comm-Link cable and plug it into one of these
communications connectors. Install a connector onto the other
end of the cable and plug it into a communications connector on
another control module or an IR Link, or connect those wires to
the direct insertion IR/RCM captive screw connector of an MLC.
Do not install more than one IR Link.
The unit must be installed with accordance with the
National Electrical Code and with local electrical codes.
Mounting the Control Module Into an AAP
Wallplate or Device Faceplate
Control module address identification DIP switches — Set
these switches to identify the address(es) of each module. Each
module must have a unique address. Each IRCM-DV+ is
assigned two addresses simultaneously: 1 and 2, or 3 and 4.
One address (address 2, for example) stores the VCR
information, the other address (address 1, for example) stores
the DVD information, and the pair of addresses (1 and 2 in this
example) are assigned together. If an IRCM-DV+ is assigned
addresses 1 and 2, another control module (a different type of
IRCM, an ACM module, or an RCM module, for example) can
be assigned to address 3 or to address 4.
2
The control module and any other adapter plates must be
attached to a device faceplate or AAP wallplate and cabled
before the device or wallplate is installed in a wall or furniture.
The screws needed for installing the control module are built
into its front panel, so no additional screws will be needed.
1.
2.
Before any cables are attached, insert the control module’s
screws through the holes in the device’s faceplate or AAP
wallplate. Secure the control module to the faceplate/
wallplate with the provided captive washers and #4-40
nuts.
For the IRCM-DV+, switch 1’s position is not important.
Note the direction of the arrow on the switch. IRCM-DV+
address settings are shown below.
Set the DIP switches, and follow steps 4 through 12 in the
Quick Start Guide (pages QS-1 and QS-2).

Using IR Learning to Set Up the Buttons
Before the IRCM’s buttons can control a VCR and a DVD player,
you must connect the module and “teach” the MLC the control
signals for each button (a process called “IR learning”). Refer to
the MediaLink Control Program and the MediaLink Controllers
User’s Manual for details on the IR learning procedure, see page
2-7 of this manual for IR Emitter and IR Broadcaster wiring
diagrams, and see the MediaLink Controllers User’s Manual for
wiring diagrams for the optional IR Link accessory.
1.
Cable and power on the MLC, the control module(s), and a
host computer.
2.
Start the Windows-based MediaLink Control Program. In
the User Mode and Controller (MLC) Config screens, the
IRCM-DV+ is shown as two separate modules. The first
(with module address 1 or 3) is designated as the DVD
half. The second (with module address 2 or 4) is
designated as the VCR half.
3.
In the Controller (MLC) Config section of the control
program, use the pulldown menus to select which of the
MLC’s inputs (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6) the DVD half of the
IRCM-DV+ will be enabled by, and which of the inputs the
VCR half will be enabled by. See the following pictures.
Associating the IRCM-DV+’s VCR half with an MLC input
4.
For each half (DVD and VCR) of the IRCM-DV+, select
(click on) the control module button (such as Play or Stop)
that you wish to program, and select Learn IR to Button
near the bottom of the screen. Follow the on-screen
directions.
5.
Aim the VCR or DVD player’s (or other device’s) infrared
remote control at the MLC’s IR pickup device, and press
the button corresponding to the function you want the
MLC to learn. For example, press the VCR remote
control’s Play button when the MLC is learning the
command for the Play button for the VCR half of the
module. The remote control must be in the direct line of
sight of the IR pickup device. If the IR command isn’t
learned on the first try, hold the remote control at several
different distances from the MLC when retrying IR
learning.
6.
Follow any directions that the MediaLink control software
provides.
7.
Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each remote control function
to be learned to a control module button.
The DVD and VCR portions of the IRCM-DV+ cannot
share the same input. You must assign a different input
number to each half of the module.

IRCM-DV+ • Installation and Operation
Once the MLC and control modules have been set up,
pressing a button on any IRCM will cause an IR
command to be sent out, regardless of whether the
display/projector’s power is on or off. Also, all the IR
IRCM-DV+ • Installation and Operation
2-9
Installation and Operation, cont’d
commands are sent to all devices (VCR, DVD, projector)
at the same time because the IR Emitters and/or
IR Broadcaster share the MLC’s Display/Source Control
IR port.
As a result it is not possible to separately control two or
more identical devices.
4B. If power is present at the MLC, at the control
module, and at the VCR and DVD, but the VCR and/
or DVD does not respond when a button is pressed:
• The MLC’s firmware may be too old.
The MLC to which the IRCM-DV+ is connected must
have MLC firmware version 1.04 or higher in order to
recognize and work with the IRCM-DV+.
Testing/Troubleshooting
• Make sure the control module’s address DIP
switch settings are correct and that each module
has a unique address.
• Verify in the MediaLink control software that an
IR command has been “learned” for each button
on the IRCM, and make sure the IRCM-DV+ has
been associated with specific inputs on the MLC.
• Verify that an IR Emitter is connected to the MLC’s
Display/Source Control IR connector for each device
(VCR, DVD player) being controlled, or that an IR
Broadcaster is connected in lieu of IR Emitters.
Before installing the control modules into the wall or furniture,
test the system to make sure that the connections are correct and
the modules are working correctly.
1.
Connect the cables between the MLC and the control
module(s), connect IR Emitters or an IR Broadcaster to the
MLC, and connect a host computer to the MLC’s Config
port. If available, cable the A/V source devices to the
display device (projector), and connect the projector to the
MLC. Refer the MediaLink Controllers Manual for wiring
diagrams.
2.
Connect the MLC to a 12VDC power source. Connect the
host computer, A/V source devices, and projector to a
power source and turn them on.
3.
Start the MediaLink Control Program, and set up the control
module(s) and the MLC (for each button select or type in
RS-232 commands, or perform IR learning, and assign
VCR and DVD functions to specific MLC inputs). If the
control program does not recognize the IRCM-DV+, you
may have an older version of the control program.
To set up the IRCM-DV+ you must use MediaLink
Control Software version 2.0 or higher.
4.
All IR control signals are sent to all devices (video
sources, projector, etc.) at the same time even if two IR
Emitters or an IR Broadcaster are installed. The IR
sending devices share the same IR Display/Control port
on the MLC. As a result it is not possible to separately
control two or more identical devices.
The VCR and DVD buttons on the MediaLink remote
control (MLA-Remote) cannot control the IRCM-DV+.
5.
Call the Extron S3 Sales and Technical Support Hotline if
the item(s) being controlled still does (do) not respond
when the control module’s buttons are pressed.
Select an MLC input button associated with the
IRCM-DV+. Press the buttons on the control module,
watch the module’s LEDs, and observe the item being
controlled by the module (VCR, DVD).
The corresponding MLC input must be selected (active)
before either part (DVD or VCR) of the IRCM-DV+ can
be activated and can control the DVD or VCR.
4A. If the TX LED does not light when a button is
pressed, check the captive screw connector wiring at
both the MLC and the control module. If the
conductor assignments are not the same at both ends,
the circuits may be damaged if power is applied to
the wrong pole, and the control module will not turn
on. Verify that the connectors are wired identically at
both ends of the cable.
