The Sanus Elements ELM501 All-In-One IR Repeater is like a dispatcher for infrared remote signals. All that's visible is one small IR receiver. You can aim up to four different remotes at it and it will send the correct signal to the correct unit, even if it's concealed behind a cabinet door.

The ELM501 allows you to keep a neat, clean appearance. Your A/V equipment can be stored in cabinets or behind your projection screen as long as the discreet little IR receiver is in line of site of your viewing position. It can be on your TV set or on a nearby table or counter. You also have the option of drilling a hole in a wall or cabinet so all that's visible is a small dark disk. (Everything needed but the drill is included.)

The unit's method of operation is clever yet simple. From the IR receiver the signals travel by a built-in discreet 36" wire to the 1 x 1 x 4 1/2 inch repeater hub. Plugged into the hub are two wires with two infrared signal repeater heads each. Each repeater head is secured in front of each component's infrared receiver.

Undesirable signals from sunlight and plasma TVs are automatically filtered out and you have complete control over four components that can be "invisible" as far as your guests are concerned.

Note: Attempting to lengthen repeater connection cord will result in loss of signal strength and possible malfunction of the unit

Effectively replicates infrared signals from remote controls to reach components stored remotely or hidden in enclosed cabinets.
All-in-one kit contains all necessary elements to control up to four components.
Filters undesirable signals from sunlight and plasma TVs to provide error-free operation.
LED status lights provide power and IR signal indication.

      Comments about SANUS Elements ELM501 All-In-One IR Repeater:

      I set this up to control a cable box in my basement at a TV location in my kitchen. I love that the IR Receiver is so small and up until now it works like a charm. On others the IR receiver is easily twice the size. My only complaint is the price since others can be had for about $ less.

      I used the repeater system to hide audio components in a closet. It worked exactly as advertised...it could use a longer receiver cable( only 3 feet in length)

      Not for Long Runs

            Comments about SANUS Elements ELM501 All-In-One IR Repeater:

            Good cheap option for short runs. The "discreet wire" connecting the IR repeater to the receiver is only 36" long. No mention of that anywhere in description.

              Product works great, used the product for my PVR which is dual frequency without any issues.

              It's best to be straight on to the receiver when setting up as much as possible.

                    easy to set-up, allows me to hide all AV equipment inside cabinet. Only drawback is reception angle of IR receiver is a little limiting - had to spend a bit of time optimizing receiver location for best reception from most points in room.

                      I used the IR repeater to be ablle to mount our satalite receiver behind a mule chest. The wife wants only to see a flat screen and no components. It allowed for that. In addition it provided the funtionality I needed and had no delay which was my biggest concern. I now own two of these and will probably add one or two more in the near future.
