Hi all, I'm in a little over my head on something and hoping you can help me out.
I currently have an Onkyo NR709 connected happily to:
TV - Samsung PN64D550C1FXZA
Blu Ray - Panny DMP - BDT220
Cable Box - Cox Communications Explorer 8240 HDC
Delphi Myfi XM Radio unit (first gen)
We are doing some home renovations and my wife asked what the possibilities were of running an IR remote extender and placing the 709, our cable box, blu ray, and Wii in our laundry room. I'm researching the remote interactive function on the 709 and I just don't understand it. Can I connect a remote extender such as this one from Monoprice:
connect that to the 709 and with a little configuration of the devices have them be operated through the RI function of the 709? Does it depend on the device if that is an option or do I need an IR connector to every device I have in the laundry room?
Any info on how to set up a system like this is helpful.
Thanks in advance for your help.
