System Contents
Your D940 Remote Control Signal Sender consists of an
Extension Unit, a Base Unit and an infrared extender.
Extension Unit
The Extension Unit senses the Infrared signals
from your remote control. An LED lights to
indicate that signals are being detected. The
Extension Unit converts the remote control signals into Radio Frequency (RF) transmissions
for communication with the Base Unit.
Base Unit
The Base Unit has an antenna, power cord,
and a jack for the Infrared Extender. The Base
Unit receives (RF) transmissions from the
Extension Unit. A light indicates that a signal
is being received. The Base Unit then converts
the RF transmissions back into Infrared signals used to control your DBS Receiver. The
Base Unit will operate up to 100 ft. away
from the Extension Unit.
Infrared Extender
This device consists of an Infrared Diode
connected to a 4 ft. extension wire and plug.
It plugs into the Base Unit for situations
where placement in front of the DBS Receiver
is difficult.

(the RCA logo is on the front).
• Make sure you are within 18 ft. of the front of the
Extension Unit.
• Make sure nothing is blocking the path between the remote and
the Extension Unit.
3. If your DBS Receiver does not respond but the red light inside the
Base Unit lights when a remote control is used:
• Make sure the Base Unit is within 20 ft. of your
DBS Receiver.
• Make sure the Base Unit front is pointing at the front of your
DBS Receiver.
• Make sure nothing is blocking the Base Unit and the
DBS Receiver.
4. If the red light on the Extension Unit lights when you operate the
remote but does not light in the Base Unit:
• Extend the antenna all the way up or move the antenna to a
different position for better reception.
• Make sure the Extension Unit is no more than 100 ft. from
the Base Unit.
5. Move the Unit that appears not to be working to another location
and try it again.
