Many people these days like to house their AV equipmet inside a cupboard so that it is out of the way. The problem is that you can't control these items as the infra-red remote control signals cannot get inside the cupboard! This is where the 291-90KIT comes in. You put the Hidden Link infra-red receiver on the outside of the cupboard, and then run it's cable down the back, and inside the cupboard and plug it into the 789-44 Connecting Block. You then plug in the supplied single infra-red emitters, and then stick those onto the infra-red receiver window of up to 4 pieces of equipment that you want to control. You can now control all the items inside your cupboard.

The Kit is supplied with all the items you need, and it is a simple plug and play operation.

Dimenions of the Hidden Link receiver: 82.5mm x 25.4mm x 50.8mm

Note that this kit is NOT suitable for controlling some models of Digital Cable box (see Compatibility Chart below). If you wish to control one of the non compatible cable boxes inside a cupboard then you would need to additionally buy a universal remote like this and also a RedEye. The universal remote sends Philips infra-red codes. They go through the Xantech equipment no problem. The Xantech emitter is then stuck onto the face of the RedEye, and the RedEye translates the Philips codes into IrDA infra-red that the cable box understands. The RedEye sticks onto the front of the cable box.
