The IR-5010 is working fine using the standard emitters that you supply. Two of my pieces of equipment have mini pin IR input ports on them, and I was hoping to be able to do a direct wired connection from the repeater hub to those pieces of equipment. That is not, however, working. I am using mono mini pin cable, on which the pin configuration seems to be the same as on the pins for the emitters. Any ideas on what is wrong?

The most likely cause of this issue is because you are using a mono to mono pin cable, and often times to transition into third party units you need a mono to stereo pin cable. Channel Vision sells these types of cables, they are called IR Bypass Cables, model # IR-4180. Please click on the following link to view the product. This has 3.5mm pin to 3.5mm pin. If the mini pin IR input ports require a different size you may need to do some web research to find the correct cable type.
