So after doing all the things I'm not supposed to do, it's working like a champ still and couldn't be happier.
Yes it has an annoying light on BOTH ends to let you know it's receiving a signal. This is a fantastic troubleshooting feature, but dang the light is SO bright. I fixed this by covering the LED on the receiver and I didn't cover the LED on the control box as it's hidden in a cabinet anyways.
My choice was to either spend $400 on an RF remote which would control everything or figure out an IR system with my current setup, this little guy did the trick at 1/10 of the cost. I wanted to get away from watching tv through the Xbox and watch it on a direct connection from the cable box so I needed to control the cable box separately. I put the IR receiver out by my tv, ran the cord under the carpet to my cabinet, installed the brainbox inside the cabinet, and ran IR eyes to each component. Once the install was done it's a matter of plugging-in to power and boom, I was up and running.
As for the IR device itself the receiver is fairly unobtrusive, it's about 1"x1"1.5" and has a long cord on it, 10 feet I believe. There is a small blue LED indicator on the face which blinks when you send a command though it has nothing to do with actual IR function, if you didn't want to see the light you could paint or tape over it. It comes with some double-sided tape attached to the back for mounting but I wanted mine attached using the top so I had to add tape there. The receiver is strong, even without a direct line of sight it still picked up signals from the remotes, I'm thinking its cone of reception is pretty wide.
The brainbox is small too, smaller than a deck of cards and has flanges if you wanted to mount it to something, I laid mine in the cabinet behind the cable box. The power cord does have a transformer but it's fairly small, I was able to fit it on the surge controller without crowding the existing plugs from other devices. There is 1 input for IR receiver and 6 outputs for IR transmitter though you can use multi-eye cords from each of those giving you what, a total of 18 devices you could control. Do you even have 18 devices? I don't. The brain sends the signal uber-fast, the moment I press a remote button the controlled device is doing what it should be doing, there is no lag that I notice.
And finally there are two double-eye emitter cords included to control up to four devices, I only needed to control three so the other eye is rolled-up and twisty-tied out of the way. The little eyes each have double-sided transparent tape on them, remove the backing, stick to the IR window on the device you're controlling and that's it. These cords are also 10 feet long so I had no trouble reaching all my devices in the cabinet.
In my setup I needed a longer cord to get from the tv to the cabinet so I also purchased a 30' extender cord to connect the IR receiver to the brainbox, any AV cord will do as long as the tip is 3.5mm. You don't need a special cord, just find the cheapest audio headphone cord and go with it, and though I'm not sure how long a cord you could use I've seen other reviews here where people have used cords at over 100 feet long. My 30' cord works fine, I don't notice any delays or interference with the signal.
As a final comment I tried using the "spaceship" RF remote extender in the past (I have a review of that too) but they didn't last, and the cost of additional RF transmitters was more than this IR device cost. These seem to be very similar devices across manufacturer and provider, I figure if this device dies in the future I could swap it out fairly quickly and easily. Overall I'm very happy with it and for less than $30 it was a no-brainer for me.
Second, take some time and experiment with the angles that the receiver can see your remote's IR signal. That will help you with positioning the receiver at the most effective angle and in the best location.
Third, I found I needed to play with the position of the IR emitters at the DVD player. I ended up positioning the emitters where they consistently triggered the DVD player, and then used a small piece of black electrician's tape to hold them there. In my case with a Panasonic DVD player, that meant having them on top of the unit, hanging over a bit onto the IR receiver in the DVD player. So it did take a little time (30 minutes or so) to get good, consistent results. But, once I got everything ironed out, it has worked very well.
