I'd like to do something similar but for the black hawks games. I'd love to hit a button and have the horn sound and go into their Chelsea Dagger theme song! For me I was thinking I can just use my jukebox setup and speakers as they run through a separate system as the theater. But I'd also like to be able to use it out in the bar area while watching a TV that is currently running sound on that same system.
Anyway sorry for your Redskins. I am a packer fan and I was actually surprised they decided to finally play some football. They have been struggling lately. Not liking their chances though this Saturday against Arizona! It was fun while it lasted
Here is what I posted (to Neurorad) on the other thread this evening:
That SD-10 Audio Repeater made by Gilderfluke & Co.
is DEFINITELY an option for me. I would also need to purchase the power supply, so I'd be in it for around $240.00. It looks like I can install the song on the SD flash card and some sort of a push-button will trigger it. RCA audio cables will connect from the device directly to the back of my AVR (at whatever analog input I choose) as my Zone 2 only will play an analog signal. If I am comprehending all of this correctly, I should be able to have Hail to the Redskins on demand without having to get up and initiate it with my iPad/iTunes library/Sonos!?!?
The one thing that I am CLUELESS is about though is how the push-button device will connect to the SD-10 but I'm sure it is relatively simple and I can figure it out with a small amount of research online. I just need to be sure that the push-button is compatible with the inputs on the SD-10.
I guess the next thing I will be researching is if there are larger buttons out there (like the size of the red STAPLES button) that can be customized. Ideally I would like to have a 2"-3" button that has "HTTR" on it - potentially that lights up as well. I would imagine that someone out there makes some sort of a clear button that opens up so you can put some sort of a label inside it???? I may be asking for too much...we'll see.
Also, I am most likely going to mount the button to a wall...quite possibly right up next to my projector housing or on the wall near my equipment & flatscreen TV. The wall beside my projector housing would be ideal as it is an easy conduit for wiring back to my rack in my equipment room:
My first choice would be to put a button on the front of my bar (seen above) between the two middle seats but I have absolutely no way to get wiring into that structure due to the granite countertop. I could bring the wire down the lally column (white wood trim) from above but there are too many 2x6's inside of the structure and I wouldn't be able to bring it out to the drywall.
The other option would be to put a button on the wall between my equipment rack and my flatscreen TV:
This plan is not in stone of course so I am still up for any ideas that folks out there might have. Fire away!
