Warranty Specifications:
Warranty on the IR-to-UHF Upgrade Kit, parts and labor is valid for one year from date
of sale. There are some items that are not covered under warranty, including installation,
cosmetic damage, damage due to lightning, electrical surges, fire, or other acts of
Nature, accident, misuse, abuse, repair or alteration by other than authorized factory
service, improper or neglected maintenance. Other restrictions apply.

   Will the IR-to-UHF Upgrade Kit work with a DISHPlayer? No, due to the
    DISHPlayer's unique IR modulation, the IR-to-UHF Upgrade Kit is not compatible.
   Do I have to connect the signal converter directly to my receiver? No, as long as the
    signal converter is placed in the vicinity of the receiver, where the receiver can
    receive the signal converter's commands via IR Blast.
   What if the IR blast cannot work because the signal converter cannot be located in a
    suitable location near the receiver? An IR extender cable is included to help insure the
    IR signal reaches the receiver from the signal converter.
   Will the UHF/IR universal remote operate other components? Yes, but not using
    UHF. It will operate them (if programmed) using IR, which requires a direct line of
    sight to control those units.
