    The receiver in my HT is situated behind a wood door and can not be moved. It is a VR509 from Kenwood. I just bought the MX500 remote and do not know what to get so the 500 can control it while the door is closed. The back of the receiver has a jack for an IR Repeater. I bought a Xantech 286M, plugged it in and ran the cable to the front but that does not work. Can someone please tell me a cheap and easy way to get this to work.

    thanks.

    The IR input is for after you go through a Xantech connector block. So you will need a pick up sensor (dinky link) the conector block, and then a mini from the block to the back of your recv. This will pick up the incoming signal and repeat it to the input of the recv.

    Get a CB12 connecting block, A Dinky Link pick up, and use a mini to mini cable from the out of the block to the in on the recv.
    Good luck
    You can also go to www.Xantech.com;)

    One last question. Would this work:

    The 291-KIT is a prepackaged infrared repeater system. It includes a 291-00 IR Receiver, a 789-44 Connecting Block, a 781C-00 Power Supply and four 283M Blink-IR™ Mouse ...

    thanks for all your help.
