I have a Yamaha HTR-5280 receiver with "remote control" in and outs in the form of 1/8 inch mini plug sockets. What equipment do I need to "extend" the ir eye on the receiver? My thinking is all I need is a remote eye sensor with the mini plug on one end. ebay and amazon have them for 5- 15 bucks. Is this true? Any information I have found elsewhere says I need an entire IR repeater setup. If this is true then what are the sockets for on the receiver????


Thanks in advance.

Per page 54 of your manual, it does appear that you can use a receiver/emitter with this model of AVR. However, I'd recommend contact Yamaha directly to get more into on the specific part you need. I'm not sure if there is a standard wiring of the receiver and emitter that would allow you to use generic parts, or if they need to be Yamaha specific.

Parts Express has a bunch of IR emitters on a 1/8" tip/sleeve connector for use in the automation systems and IR repeater setups.

I would listen to Marshall and contact Yamaha to be sure, but I have never had a problem with mixing and matching these simple emitters across brands.
