I have recently moved into a new home that has a built in cabinet with solid wood doors housing all my equipment. I will have AV receiver, BluRay player, cable box, and a flat screen mounted on the cabinet about 10 feet from the equipment.
I also have outdoor speakers that would be roughly 100 feet from the cabinet.
My initial thought was to do IR Repeater system from the TV down to the equipment as there is already a CAT5 wires in place between the TV area and the equipment. I am now reading about RF remotes and it may make sense to just buy one of those and I can use that to control the equipment behind the cabinetry in the main room and then use it out in backyard to control the system inside as well.
Any suggestions on which remote to buy and if this is feasible at all??
