Lifestyle 650 - IR emitters - TV control

Hi, 

I have upgraded from 535 to 650. To my disappointed I discovered that the infrared emitter on the Bose remote is gone, and that the signal to control the tv is sent from the Bose console and emitters. 

 

I have the bose unit in a cabinet without line of sight to the TV. The included IR-emitters are too short for my set up. 

 

Can these emitters be extended?

Hi Marius, 

 

thank you for your post. The IR emitters use a 3.5mm connection. A 3.5mm extension cable (male to female) would allow you extend the length of the IR emitter cable. 

 

Best regards,

Ok thanks,

I need one cable to run 10ft to the TV, and the rest to remain within distance of the Bose console.

Would a 3,5mm splitter and a extra set of ir-emitters solve my problem?

Hi Marius,

 

Yes, the 3.5mm splitter and extra set of IR emitters should resolve your issue. Let us know the results once you get everything setup.
