I need a simple IR repeater system just to control a Yamaha RX-V663 receiver with a plasma TV. Any suggestions?

Dunno if it's any good, but I've been looking at this one...

However, I already have a IR receiver and IR blaster so really all I need is the IR repeater and I think I can get just that part for less cost.

Just because there is a knob doesn't mean you should turn it.

I was also looking for an IR extender and I got one from CTG two days back.

It works as advertised, but it has issues in my environment. I have a large screen plasma TV and it interferes with the IR receiver. You will need to be careful due to your plasma TV. I think the interference will be more with the larger screen.

I am planning to try extender from Logitech provided I get positive feedback regarding my issue.

These too are on my list...
Hot Link Pro and Xantech
Let us know how your search proceeds and your experience with an extender that you decide on.

I'm using a Logitech 915-000139 Harmony IR Extender System

It works very well without any issues.
