I'm going to be moving my av receiver, dtv receiver, and HTPC downstairs in the basement for a cleaner install. This is going to include a long HDMI cable and a xantech remote repeater.
I was wondering if anybody has seen or uses some sort of notification so they know if a component is on or off. For example, sometimes my HTPC doesn't turn on automatically, and right now, I can look at the device and see if the power light is on or if it's in standby mode. Same with the dtv receiver. My idea is to have some sort of LED or other notification that lets me know if the device is on or off.
