CONFIGURATION 4 – INTEGRATING AN IR-CONTROLLED HOME THEATER
An IR-controlled Home Theater surround-sound receiver can be integrated to share source components in a
system with the ZR-4630.
Distributing Audio Signals
Audio signals for the shared source components are connected to both the ZR-4630 and the Home Theater
receiver using RCA Y-adapters (Figure 8).
Important Note: If the Home Theater Receiver has shorting audio inputs, a Niles AVDA-3 Distribution Amplifier
must be used in place of the RCA Y-adapters (refer to Figure 7).
Shared Source Component Control
The Flasher output from the Home Theater IR repeater (Figure 8) is connected to the IR Input of the ZR-4630.
The Home Theater IR remote control is nowable to control the shared source components.
A12V Sync signal is provided from the Home Theater to the Home Theater Sync Input to provide the ZR-4630
with the On/Off status of the Home Theater. This status enables the ZR-4630 to provide coordinated control of
the shared source component's power ON/OFF.
Important Note: When issuing the source component’s actual IR commands from the Home Theater remote
control, all IR commands are passed through to all source-component flasher outputs. Identical brand and
model source components cannot be operated individually using these commands. (For more information on
controlling identical brand and model source components, refer to the Operation Overview on page 32.)
