INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION DIAGRAM
1. Determine a mounting location for the IR-FMR.
2. Drill a 1/2" hole where the IR-FMR will be
mounted.
3. Secure the IR-FMR by tightening the hex nut.
DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN.
4. Run the IR-FMR cable. Label the cable for future
reference.
5. Strip 1/4" of insulation from the end of each

equipment directly. Replace the batteries if
needed.
2. Double-check the cable connections on all
IR-FMRs and on the Connecting Block. Look
for open, shorted or reversed wires.
3. Test for interference from the following
sources:
I
Neon or halogen lights in the room
I
Light dimmers, beginning with those closest to
the IR-FMR
I
Observe the IR-FMR's LED while performing
all the tests. It is possible to have interference
from more than one source
Eliminating optical feedback:
Optical Feedback Loop:
If you have an IR Receiver in the same room as a
Emitter, and you have some low-level noise or
interference, an optical feedback loop can occur
which will interfere with proper operation.
Symptoms can include: poor range, intermittent
operation or no operation.
Solution:
Replace the IR-E1HO "flooding Emitter" with
IR-E1 or IR-E2 Emitters and covering all Emitters
with the supplied IR Blocking Covers.

Identifying the type of interference:
The "talk-back" LED on the front of the IR-FMR is
a useful trouble-shooting aid. The LED should
light blue only when a remote command is being
received. However, if the LED on the IR-FMR
"flickers", and the IR-FMR functions normally,
there is no cause for concern.
If the IR-FMR does not work, and the LED
does not light at all:
Test the remote control(s) by operating the A/V
equipment directly. Replace the batteries if
needed. Double-check the wiring connections of
the IR-FMR, at the IR Connecting Block. Consult
your IR Connecting Block's manual for more
detail.
If the IR-FMR does not work, and the LED
flickers or remains solidly lit:
Cover up the Receiver with a piece of cardboard
(your hand will actually create electromagnetic
interference under some conditions). Observe
the IR test LED.
IR Test LED Off:
Optical Interference.
IR Test LED On or Flickering:
Electromagnetic Interference.
EMI (Electromagnetic Interference):
Solution:
1. Move the Receiver or the Receiver cable away
from the EMI source or move the source of the
EMI away from the Receiver or the cable.
