Add another "nope!" to the responses!

I have two 1100's for two separate systems - a main level "everyday" system, and a dedicated basement media room that's typically only used on the weekends. And a friend of mine also has one, which he bought quite a few years ago via my recommendation.

I only use the RF feature in the media room, for controlling the Lutron Maestro IR dimmer switch. All other signals are IR, which are send to the remote equipment rack via a Xantech repeater system. About the only RF issue I have is when the cleaners might bump the stand where the blaster is...

BTW, I see you're in Palo Alto. I worked on a project at Stanford shopping center back in 2010, so was onsite a few times...you live in a great area!

still one of my favorite bumper stickers of all time...

Seattle is great too.

RF is essential in our setup because everything except the Kuro is in another room.

I remember your posts over in the 9G Elite thread - I'm also a 141 owner which is part of my everyday system, and even that is not used often enough (only ~4300 hours on the panel).

For the media room, I had thought about going full RF since all gear except the PJ is in another room, but instead installed the Xantech setup for quickest response. Glad to know your RF works well so I might have to try that option down the road...

All of our components are on a rack behind the same wall where the TV is hung. I brought a IR blaster back through the wall and pasted it to the TV's receptor. I'm at the point where I don't mess with anything that works reasonably well.
