Before You Start

The Serial Extender is an important element of the RC9001 System and makes it possible to control A/V equipment via RF in the entire house. In addition, it can be connected to A/V equipment via RS232 and allows you to use power sensing for reliable power on/off switching. You can also use it to control drapes and projector lifts, for example.

In order to use the Extender in a Wireless Network:

Install the Extender: connect it to a router and external equipment, like a TV or receiver.

Configure the Extender: connect it to the PC and use the Configuration Tool.

The Extender is used in a network with a Wireless Access Point and/or a router, as illustrated below.

Connecting the Extender to External Equipment

The Extender can be connected to external equipment through the various outputs on the back panel.

Warning Make sure that the equipment is always turned off before connecting it to the Extender.

Attaching the Extender to Infrared Controlled A/V equipment

For the Extender to transmit an IR signal, you need to connect it to the A/V component via the IR Output on the back of the Extender. In contrast to previous Marantz Extenders, the RX9001 has no IR blaster.

To connect the Extender to infrared controlled A/V equipment, use one of the following cables enclosed with the Extender:

a Dual IR emitter; -or-

a mini-jack IR cable.

Insert the mini-jack in the Extender and attach an emitter to the infrared display of the infrared controlled device.

Insert one mini-jack in the Extender and the other in the infrared controlled device.

Adjusting the Power Level of the IR Outputs

At the back of the Extender there are 4 dipswitches, one for each IR output. Use these dipswitches to reduce the power level of the Dual IR emitters and the mini-jack cables.

This is useful when you suspect that the IR signal is too strong for the receiving A/V component, or when you connect the IR port to an external IR-bus system.
