I've just joined this forum to make this post but I have done searches to try to get information that I could use. Last winter I had some work done on my family room and I had an HDMI cord run from a wall outlet to a closet. This wall outlet also has an electrical plug and coax connector. It is halfway up the wall.
Here's what I would like to do:
Hang my 40" lcd tv (this is what I have currently but I plan to buy a 55 led 3d soon, just waiting for the best deal) on the wall in front of this outlet.
Get a HDMI switch box with remote and connect all of my components (cable box, bluray -- possibly an xbox or computer one day). And get an IR Repeater so that I can put all of these things (and possibly an old ONKYO reciever) in the closet where the HDMI cable is.
I hope I'm making sense here. I just want the tv on the wall and nothing else seen -- all of the other stuff to be hidden in the closet. I want to do this *without* any drywall work. Is there anyway I can use the HDMI or coaxial cable to connect the ir repeater? I don't want any wires to be seen. I would also like suggestions on a good HDMI switch box (with remote) and a good ir repeater. Thanks for any assistance.
