It is not possible to connect the two with just wire. I suggest just taping an ir emitter to an external ir receiver to make an optically issolated connection. You can wrap the whole assembly in electrical tape to stop outsite light from leaking in.

I would like to connect my own house-wide IR repeater system to a QIP 7216. I have several QIP 7216s located remotely in an equipment rack. Do you know which connections on the rear IR Remote Input Jack are IR Signal, Voltage and Ground? (The Verizon FiOS tech didn't know what I was talking about)

TIP = ?
RING = ?
SLEEVE =?

I'm going to guess that:
The SLEEVE is Ground
The TIP is Voltage (5v? 9v? 12v?)
The RING is IR Signal

But I don't like to guess! I only need to utilize the Ground and the IR Signal connections.

Revising an old thread:

So I'm using a Motorola qip cable box with a Pro Control Remote. Customer wants to add a TV in the other room and split the hdmi connection. Well I figured I could just plug in those IR receiver cables the cable providers handout and all will be good. Well it works in the other room but it disables IT on the front of the cable box for the emmiter.

FML lol
Knowing that Gold went up a few K makes me think "well now I have to do a better job on selling more equipment".

They've always done this. It's great when they're in a rack and you don't have to worry about the front IR window getting hit with stray signals.

Tell the customer to get another cable box.

Well, the customer was my mother in law & she didn't want to pay $12 a month for another cable box.

All I did was mount the IR eye on the IR receiver in the other room lol. Works great. Nothing like a little Frankenstein install. 👌🏻
