Infrared Signal over HDMI Cable –
Dual Band Adapter Kit
IMPORTANT READ ME FIRST –INSTRUCTION MANUAL
In order to operate a device using its remote control the device must have line-of-sight with the remote control. When the
device is placed out-of-sight, the remote control will not function as line-of-sight is required to operate. In some A/V
configurations, the video source is placed a great distance from the TV or inside of a closet. In addition, if the supported
distance between the device and the remote control is exceeded, the remote control will not function.
The Accell Infrared Signal over HDMI Cable Dual Band Adapter Kit extends the signal from the remote control of your BluRay player, DVR, set-top box or other HDMI enabled device by sending the remote control's
IR (infrared) signal over your HDTV's existing HDMI cable. The IR adapter kits works with
single band and dual band infrared. See Single Band and Dual Band Frequencies below.
Features:
• 33 kHz – 60 kHz dual band emitter
•Flawless A/V transfer - no distortion or attenuation
•Supports HD resolutions including 1080p and 3D
•Fully HDMI and HDCP 1.2 compliant
Includes:
- Two IR adapters
- One IR transmitter (TX) - 56" cable
- One IR receiver (RX) - 48" cable
- Double sided tape
- Instructions
This adapter kit uses the unused CEC channel of your HDMI cable to transmit the IR signal
over the length of the HDMI cable. The CEC channel is used by select digital TVs enabling them to send control commands to
your video sources and is often unused. The IR Adapters each have a two position switch. One position is labeled “IR” and
the other position is labeled “CEC”. For the IR functionality to work, both IR Adapters must be switched to “IR”. To enable
the HDMI cable to operate with the TV’s CEC functionality, toggle both IR adapters to “CEC”. See image above.

Plug the IR Receiver marked “RX” into the 3.5mm port marked “IR” on the side of one of the IR Adapters.
Connect your HDTV's HDMI cable into the IR Adapter’s female HDMI port labeled “IN”.
Plug the IR Adapter’s HDMI port labeled “OUT” directly into your HDTV's HDMI port.
Place the sensor end near the TV or in a location where you will be aiming the remote control. The round “eye” on
the end of the IR RX Receiver should be visible to the remote. Use the double-side tape to affix the sensor if needed.
Plug the IR Transmitter marked “TX” into the 3.5mm port located on the side of the second IR Adapter marked “IR”.
Connect the other end (source side) of the HDMI cable into the IR Adapter’s female HDMI port labeled “IN”.
Plug the IR Adapter’s HDMI port labeled “OUT” directly into the HDMI port of your video source.
Place the sensor pointing to the front panel of the video source. More specifically, there is an IR receiver built into
the front panel of the video source. The round “eye” on the end of the IR TX emitter should be pointed at the IR
receiver of the video source.
Ensure the toggle switches on both adapters are set to “IR”. Setup is complete.
Troubleshooting: Confirm the setup is correct. The switch on both IR Adapters should be set to “IR”. Ensure the remote is
pointed at the end of the IR RX and the IR TX is pointed at the infrared receiver eye on your video source.
To check if your system is repeating the signal from your remote control, a digital camera or cell phone camera can be used.
For smartphones with dual cameras, use the front facing camera. To quickly get an idea what to look for, look at the “eye”
on the end of your remote control through your camera and then press any button on the remote control. You will see the IR
“eye” on the end of the remote control flash.
To test the IR Adapter Kit in this manner it is best to have a person using the remote on the IR RX (TV) end and a second
person viewing the IR TX (video source end) through the camera. Operate the remote control while pointed at the end if the
IR RX receiver. View the end of the IR TX transmitter through the camera. You should see a flashing light coming from the
eye of the IR TX transmitter. If the light is continuous and not blinking, the IR Adapter Kit may be defective.
If you do not see the flashing light coming from the eye of the IR TX transmitter, check to determine if the problem is with
the HDMI cable by doing the same test using a different HDMI cable. If the signal works, the HDMI cable is defective. If it is
correctly passing the signal, the IR TX is not pointed at the IR eye of the source device or there may be an incompatibility
problem with the source device and the IR TX. To confirm this, set up the IR Adapter kit to control a different source device.
Alternatively, install the setup in reverse with the IR TX on the TV and IR RX on the source device. Try to use your TV’s
remote at the source device location to control your TV.
Single Band and Dual Band Frequencies: There are two general frequency ranges (bands) used by a device for IR
control. The first band is 33-43 kHz, the second band is 44-60 kHz. For the IR system to work, your remote, device, and IR
extender must share the same frequency. Since the IR Adapter Kit is Dual Band and supports both bands, devices using any
of these two bands are supported. Contact your device manufacturer to determine the IR frequency (band) it is using.
