I am using a 5v remote control system over the RG6 RF coax cable to remotely control the Sky STB and DVD player.

I have the IR targets, which connect 'in-line' to the coax cable, at the remote TV end.

What I need is a device that 'drives' these targets and produces the IR signal to the emitters placed in front of the Sky STB and DVD player. At present I use a Hills Distribution Amp/Splitter, but I want to do away with this as it is causing interference on some channels.

So all I need is a device that plugs 'in-line' to the coax, after the RF Out on the Sky STB, that inserts 5v into the coax and has some electronics to receive the signal from the remote IR targets and send to IR emitters. Even if there is no device I can buy, does anyone have a circuit diagram of such a thing so I could make up my own.

Thanks

That's exactly the type of device, although this one looks like 12v when I need 5v.

How did you find this, I have looked several times and missed this one - what was your search string?

No search string. It's just a place I have purchased from before when I lived in the US. For example for IR repeating I use this device

Check this link out http://www.tvlink.co.uk/ I used to install these when I lived in the UK and they are great I dont know why NZ Sky dont use these I guess they love to get all that extra cash from the extra decoders they install into peoples homes. The tv link could be powered of the RF 2 output of the decoders which provides 9vdc but from what I have seen this feature has not been enabled by sky nz. If you are able to install a seperate system I would recommend the following link http://www.controlplus.co.nz/ there IR stuff is really cool.
