    Problem connecting with Xantech 791-44

    I have one run of cable that is approx 50' feet from a Xantech Hidden link IR receiver to a Xantech 791-44 connecting block and I am using Cat5e cable. This is the only cable connected and I am using the Xantech 12v power supply so I don't think power is an issue.

    I cannot get these two to talk at that distance.
    If I connect the two up over a 2-3 foot run all works fine. I have tested the continuity of the cable and it's fine as well.

    I did note that in the instructions for the 791-44 there is a statement that a 470 ohm 1/8 watt resister may be needed at lengths greater than 50'.

    Has anyone else run into this problem and if so how did you solve it?

    Anybody ??
