I have just purchased the ”1055 – PhidgetIR”, and I intent to use it for controlling TV, DVD and so on, and also receive signals from various remote controls.
Has anyone tried or knows if it is possible to the dismount the receiver and /or the transmitter led and move them away from the kit/PCB by externals wires. (To have the kit/PCB close to the computer and the receiver/transmitter close to the TV in the living room.)
If it is possible, is there a recommended maximum distance?
Or a way to amplify the signal, so it can be carried a longer way ?
Or even better to mount multiple receivers/transmitters so I can control different electronics in more than one room.
If it´s possible, what receiver/transmitter is used ?
