    Good product, but one design flaw.

    Overall: 4 out of 5

    I bought and installed two of the 50-14620 IR over HDMI repeaters.
    The repeaters are easy to set up and work very well.
    There is one significant design flaw. The cable from the IR receiver or transmitter plugs into one side of the connector that inserts the signal in the HDMI line. The plug interferes with any other connector next to it.
    Specifically, when used with a 33-12710 HDMI splitter, the IR transmitter plug sticks out right where the power supply plug for the splitter is. The less than satisfactory solution is a HDMI female to female coupler and a male to male cable to extend the IR repeater away from the splitter. There would be the same problem if the IR repeater were pluged into any video component with a row of HDMI jacks.
