  • Plug the IR extender into the transmitter in rear panel
  • Orient the end of the IR extender so that it points in the general direction of the IR Sensors of the source AV equipment you wish to be controlled. Cut a length of provided fastener strip to secure the IR extender, which is always in its position.
