Do you have the Invisible Multi-Room Remote Extender (LRRX)? We’ll show you how to install this device to your home’s entertainment system.
The invisible multi-room remote extender (LRRX) works with any infrared remote control for any TV, VCR, satellite receiver, or other infrared remote controlled device. It allows you to control any IR device through walls, ceilings, and floors using RF. As electronics products go, the LRRX is very easy to set up and use. Let Solid Signal show you how to install your invisible multi-room remote extender. Below is a list of items included with the product (LRRX):
How It Works
The remote and battery transmitter send the converted IR/RF signals to the RF receiver. The RF receiver receives the RF signals then converts them back into IR. It then sends the IR signals through the IR repeater, which transmits the IR commands to the controlled device. You can now use your remote control from any room in your home. The RF signals will pass through walls, ceilings, floors from up to 100 feet away. This effectively extends the usability of your remote control.
LRRX Installation Instructions
Here’s an easy, step-by-step guide to help you install your invisible multi-room remote extender:
Step 1: Plug in the RF receiver (the object that looks like a flying saucer) into an 110V outlet near the device you would like to control. Use the power supply for the RF receiver (supplied).
Step 2: Insert one of the rechargeable 2/3 batteries into the under-compartment of the RF-receiver. This will begin charging the spare rechargeable battery for later use.
Step 3: Plug in the RF repeater into the RF receiver, then position the IR Repeater in front of the IR receiver on the device to be controlled. (See figure A below.)
Step 4: Take a fully-charged 2/3 AAA rechargeable battery and insert it into the RF Transmitter piece. The RF transmitter will be used by the remote control to send the converted IR/RF signals to the RF receiver on top of the device to be controlled. See figure B below:
Step 5: If your remote control uses AA size batteries, you must use the AAA-to-AA battery size converter Sleeve to change the size of the combination RF transmitter/battery you assembled in figure B. See figure C below. If your remote uses AAA size batteries, you do not need to use the sleeve and you may continue to the next step.
Step 6: Once you’ve completed the RF transmitter/battery assembly, place the entire assembly into the battery compartment of the remote control where a regular battery would normally reside. (See figure D below.)
Step 7: Replace the cover for the battery compartment on the remote control. Your remote is now ready to transmit the converted IR/RF signals to the RF receiver near the device.

Press the to find the answer to a specific question.
The system says that you can convert more than one remote. Do you sell the transmitter/battery separately?
A: Yes. Separate battery transmitters are available here.
If I want to buy two of these systems to control two different cable boxes, it seems that every time I use a remote, it would affect both boxes. Is it possible that the transmitter/receiver can be setup to work from different channels via dipswitch?
All this device does is convert IR signal to RF and then back to IR. The differences in controllers would have to be set up with the units being controlled. It’s similar to changing the remote codes for satellite receivers or wireless phone jacks.
Would using this system interfere with another remote extender system I’m using?
In most cases, the LRRX doesn’t interfere with other remote extenders. You should be fine as long as the remote using the LRRX doesn't interfere with operation of other remote extenders during normal operation of the remote. Check prior to purchasing the LRRX.
What comes with the LRRX invisible multi-room remote extender?
This product includes the following: two rechargeable AAA batteries, one RF transmitter, one AAA to AA battery size converter sleeve, and RF receiver battery charger, one power supply for the RF receiver, and an IR repeater/transmitter for an RF receiver.
