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.
