IR Emitter that works with dual control systems

I've had a hard time sourcing one of these IR emitters.  It has one emitter, but two 3.5mm jacks and inline diodes.  This allows two control systems to control the device, and the diodes prevent voltage from feeding back to the other system.  Anyone ever make one of these on their own, or know how the diodes would need to wire in to create same setup.

Thanks,

Greg

i am assuming a 12 volt diode from auto zone would work. Will need 2 on each of the 3.5mm connectors voltage side along with a voltmeter to test directionality. What 2 systems are you using?
