I'm looking to change the remote control in my existing theater. I currently have the rack installed flush with the back wall and have Crestron controls. I'm looking to change for three reasons: 1. Lightning damaged one Crestron Controller COM port (projector control doesn't work) and it will cost $300 minimum to have repaired. 2. I hate the MX-500 remote due to the terrible central selector and it will cost me $600 for a new remote and at least $300 in updated programming. 3. Component replacements in the future will cost more in programming. The Harmony looks promising since their database says it will control my Vidikron Vision 12 projector and my Outlaw 990. But, will the IR work for me? Since the components are flush mount with the wall behind the seating, I have no 'shelf' on which to place the hub in front of the gear. Can I mount it to the ceiling above and in front, and if so, any experience with the range it will work? If it's not likely to work, any other suggestions?
