If you're looking for "reliable" control of equipment, a hardwired IR repeating system will do much better than using an RF based remote.
Low cost RF based remotes, like the One for All mentioned above, are susceptible to RF noise. The receiver has a hard time distinguishing the "true" remote signals from the RF noise.
Even if there is little or no RF noise present in your area, (highly unlikely) being the equipment will be located in a basement, the operation will be erratic at best.
Because of concrete walls and the fact that most basements are underground, the RF receiver would be effectively shielded from the remote.
