Trying to figure out which remote. I saw the new logitech Harmony ultimate launched.
I actually have a few months to buy, but right now I need to wire the house and figuring if I need to wire a separate cable for Infrared repeater? If so, what do I wire?
Main TV room has a epson projector. Cabinet is about 50ft away will house a directv box, mac mini running plex (can I drive the mini w/a remote control for plex?) I don't have it yet as the other rooms I was going to have samsung tv's running plex thus could navigate the menu. I guess I can have a roku box for this projection tv?
Either way, what remote would you recommend? I really need the kids to be able to operate it.
Eventually I want this room to be more automated and would upgrade in 1-2 years something that could control the lights, shades, as well.
But for now, turning on the projector, reciever and switching inputs on the receiver and controlling the sources (directv and plex via roku etc) and a blu ray player)
If I wire w/ IR repeaters, and have a bunch of other directv boxes do I just mask off with IR on each box w/ electrical tape so the light doesn't bounce around and control the other boxes?
the RF extenders seems cool http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Harmony-RF-Wireless-Extender/dp/B000ILIHTC/ref=pd_bxgy_e_text_y
