Finding an infrared repeater that works with Telus TV set top boxes can be a very difficult and frustrating task. There are many infrared repeater systems on the market but only a few will work with Telus TV and Cisco Set Top TV Boxes. Why is it so difficult to find an IR Repeater to work with Telus TV?
The answer is simple Telus TV and Cisco Set Top Boxes transmit Infrared Signals on a different frequency than your standard Television or A/V component’s IR signals.
Thought all IR signals are the same? Actually they’re not. Standard IR Signals for AV equipment transmit in the 34-38Khz (kilo-hertz) while some newer components transmit in the 56-60Khz range. In order for newer components to work with an IR-repeater system you need a DUAL-BAND IR-repeater system such as the ION Premium Infrared Repeater Kit.
The ION Premium Infrared Repeater Kit is a dual band repeater which works with Telus TV, Bell and Shaw set top boxes. Because the repeater works from 34Khz to 60Khz this IR Repeater will work on most IR controlled electronic AV equipment. So far the ION Premium Infrared Repeater has worked with every TV, Set Top Box and AV Receiver we’ve tried.
The ION Premium Infrared Repeater kit comes with a powered repeater block with 12V input, IR Target input and six (6) emitter output jacks. The standard kit comes with two dual IR emitters which allow you to control up to four components. Four (4) more single or dual emitters can be connected providing you control of up to 12 devices. The stylish IR Target is LCD, Plasma and CFL Proof which allows IR signals to be transmitted in areas with compact fluorescent lighting and has been tested to work on 65″ plasma TVs and 80″ Sharp LED TVs.
The IR-Target contains a blue LED which flashes providing user feedback when signals are received and the connecting block also has LED status indicators.
