Troubleshooting Guide - IR Flashers
Problem: Cable box responds erratically or skips channels. Cable box remote works only when close to IR receiver. Extra delay between channel or volume changes.
Solution: SnapAV flashers are very strong and the output signal that may be overpowering some components.
Place the flasher on a nearby surface. Under a shelf or on the opposite door if in a cabinet or closet. Masking tape can be used under the flasher to help minimize the effect. Depending on the component a piece of electrical tape with a pinhole will also work well.
This same symptom may be also caused by a “Double flash”. A IR receiver is triggered by the same signal a millisecond apart. This is mostly caused by the flasher of a nearby component or a reflection off a light colored surface. This will confuse some component IR receivers and cause them to temporarily “freeze” or lock up.
This can be remedied by using the flasher cover included with the IRF-1 and IRF-2. Some components have a very large area of IR receiver that will not be covered by the IRF covers included. Black electrical Tape or a similar covering will block any stray IR.
Check the component manuals for the IR receiver locations and size.
