Gadget found attached to tv

Recommended Posts

I found this gadget attached to the tv in my Carnival Breeze cabin. I hope it's not a camera!

I am disabled but our cabin was not accessible. But from my viewpoint I caught a glimpse of this gadget taped near the bottom of the tv. Any idea what it is?

Can I suggest that you repost this on the 'Ask a Cruise Question" board. You're bound to get a lot more answers there.

The problem is "we" can't see what it was connected to. My question is, did you bother to ask steward or security?

I did not ask our steward or security. We were traveling with my sister & her husband who was a homicide detective & I asked him what it was. He thought it was a part of the remote control system but I'm a bit more suspicious.

I think your brother in law was right.

That is an infrared blaster. You will find it attached to the IR window on a TV or cable box. Do internet search for pictures and more info.

It's a camera.  I now have all of the photos.  Send your money to:

 

Old Pink

The Funny Farm, 

Chalfont

 

I keed, I keed.  It is an IR blaster/receiver for your TV.

 

Bonus points to anyone who gets my reference.

This is a IR receiver.  Many hotels/cruise lines use it to make all tv's uniformly work for remotes.  It is not a camera.

It's a camera.   I installed one on a cruise last month.  Here's a picture of what I got sent to me from that cruise.

I found this hanging from my ceiling one night.  I thought it was a camera too, so I threw it overboard off my balcony.

Thanks for almost making me splash my Monster energy drink on the screen!

 

However, OP, that is an "IR" blaster receiver, ie Infrared receiver for a TV remote control.
