Infrared Emitter Cable

Can someone tell me what is the infrared emitter cable used for?

It came with my HP Touchsmart 300-1360.

Thank you.

Re: Infrared Emitter Cable

IR Emitter cable is used to connect to the cable set top box. So, you will be able to control the set top box, like changing channels using the computers remote control.

Re: Infrared Emitter Cable

Do I still have to connect the cable company's incoming cable to my computer in order to watch TV on the computer?

Thanks for the information.

First:  The link above is to a support document found on hp.com that shows how to set up your media center.  It's subject says "using the remote" but there is more. 

 

Second:     The following link is to the product page of your touchsmart.  Add it to your favorites If you'd like to learn more,if you want to solve a problem, or obtain sw and driver downloads so that it is just  a click away.  There is even a link to the hp consumer support forums.

Just an employee trying to help.  My opinion.

 

Happy Computing!!!

Re: Infrared Emitter Cable

The IR cable should be connected to the IR blaster out port which is behind the Touchsmart, below the audio out port (Green color).
