First apologies if this scenario has been addressed. I searched the forums for quite a while and did not see any real options since this was last dicussed a couple of years ago. Here's what I want to do:
Distribute 1 HDMI source (FIOS HD DVR) to HDTVs in 3 separate rooms - AND provide for IR control of the source from any of those rooms (only 1 at a time of course). I've got (2) RG6/QS fanned out to each location from my wiring closet, as well as (1) spare Cat-5E to eachj location. Looking for the most compact way to do this (fewest components) over the same cabling.
Not super sensitive to price, more concerned w.simplicity and reliability. I've looked at the Gefen products and the Just Add Power [Ethernet/IP based] solutions but it seems the IR backhaul is either not included.
Thanks for any ideas or new products I've missed!
