CONFIGURATION 5 – INTEGRATING A HOME THEATER USING AN INTELLICONTROL
AHome Theater system controlled by a Niles IntelliControl can be integrated to share source components in
asystem with the ZR-4630.
Audio signals for the shared source components are connected to both the ZR-4630 and the Home Theater
receiver using RCA Y-adapters (Figure 9).
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 (for more information see configuration 3).
Shared Source-Component Control
The Flasher output from the IntelliControl®(Figure 9) is connected to the IR Input of the ZR-4630. The
IntelliControl, programmed with Niles R-4 Remote IR commands, nowcan automate and control the shared
source-components. Niles R-4 IR commands are taught to the IntelliControl using the R-4 Remote itself (see
Programming Overview for more details).
A12V Sync signal is provided from the IntelliControl 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 source component's power ON/OFF.
Important Note: When issuing the source component’sactual 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.)
