I didn't know why it didn't work when I posted, but had a minute of break to phone AA inbetween our posts.
Jeff... I am so so very frustrated. The tech from the a/v company that has helped me came out today while I was at the office and he installed an Episode 6-Emitter IR repeater kit in the Media Room...
I get in and there is a picture playing and the sound is from the AVR the AVR remote is working and I think... "HE DID IT!".... wrong. And he texted me that it was working fine...
I now have no control over the source, only the avr and I am livid. (for $75 an hour).
If this thing will work to control the avr, then great... but the bigger question is... How do you make this room a zone like any other zone on the matrix... other than it will play sound through the AVR?
Is there something huge I am missing... right now and before I get on a freakin ladder and reinstall my ir receiver into the AA wallplate... when I choose a source, the AVR only plays the sound from the source it previously was on.
It's now gotten so confusing, and it didn't used to be for me.
