Ok, now we are thinking outside the box...I knew I would get some creative suggestions. I like the idea of hiding the AppleTV behind the top vent and using the IR repeater. (there are two fans in the top of the rack enclosure, so heat shouldn't be an issue). I thought about the Oppo, but I like the uniform look of keeping it Pioneer, plus I use the A/V Control app which would only work with the BDP-62FD. But just to be clear about Tedd's suggestion...I've looked at getting a single unit faceplate and I was told that they (Middle Atlantic) don't make 1U custom face plates. Does anyone have any different personal experience? BTW, I held on to the AppleTV with the hard drive because I just liked photos and videos on the system to avoid the buffering issue while streaming. I just thought it looked way better with the aluminum face than the black plastic box, and it has analog outputs which allow me to run music to Zone 2. If anyone knows away around that, let me know and I would probably go ahead and upgrade to the latest AppleTV to get 1080p and Airplay since it will be hidden behind the vent? ---Thanks!
