Good afternoon,

My TV Setup consist of

1. 46'' Samsung LCD
2. Samsung BluRay Player
3. Scientific Atlanta cable box
4. Onkyo Amplifier

My goal is to keep the Blu-Ray and Scientific Atlanta cable box on my TV furniture but to move my Onkyo Amplifier downstairs as it's pretty ugly wink.gif

I have seen two solutions

1. IR Repeater..

2. Nextgen IR to RF

With the IR Repeater, I can keep my current remote as is and it will send a IR signal to a IR receiver close to my main TV.. and will send that IR signal downstars to my Onkyo..

With the nextgen, I add a RF battery to my current remote and it will send a RF signal directly to the nextgen box who will transfer it back to IR.

With the nextgen solution, will I still be able to control my Blu-Ray and Cable box using my current IR signal and for my onkyo it will send a RF signal ?

My setup will be pretty hybrid as some components will be away (onkyo) and some will stay close to tv (bluray and cable box)

Thanks so much for the help..

With the NextGen you can still use your standard IR devices. I have had one for a few years now and it works great. I control my tv with the standard ir (power, volume, etc) but my sources are all in another room and are controlled with the NextGen.

I hope that answers your question,
