Scientific-Atlanta's new IR Extender lets users put their set-top almost anywhere

A new device from Scientific Atlanta gives consumers the freedom to put their set-top box virtually anywhere – up to 25 feet from their TV. With Scientific-Atlanta's new IR Extender, all people see is a tiny receiver by the TV. Users plug the USB into the set-top and then place the receiver on or near the TV.

The IR Extender offers a solution for subscribers who want to hide their Explorer Digital Home Communications Terminal (DHCT) in an entertainment center or other area where the DHCT is out of sight. The small device connects to the USB port of all models of Explorer set-tops and other set-tops compatible with the Scientific-Atlanta digital network.
