Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9725821A1] A communication system including a transmitter (10) and a transceiver (11) for controlling the operation of multiple receivers (24-30). The transmitter sends data packages as an IR signal and also has a receiver (16) for sensing the transmission of IR packages from a transceiver. The transceiver receives the IR packages from the transmitter and transmits IR packages from the transmitter to any one or more of the multiple receivers. When the transmitter sends a stop signal (15) this is not transmitted or received by the transceiver until the transceiver is a space mode between data packages. This permits for coordinated transmission between the transmitter and transceiver and ensures that signals from the transmitter do not overlap transceiver output signals.
