I'm building a component cabinet to go with my new plasma tv. l don't want to look at either the components or all the wires. I'd like to keep the cabinet doors closed.


Does anyone make an a/v receiver (or any other components) that use rf rather than optical/infrared/or other line-of-sight devices?


(RF is the type that will work from another room).


Tnx for your help.

Pursuing that option will severely limit your choices. I know of only 2 receivers with RF-capable remotes, and they're both in the $3500+ range. And the only A/V component with an RF-capable remote that I know of are some of the older "high-end" DirecTV receivers from Sony and Hughes.


Your better option is to pursue a remote-control repeater solution. Here's a current thread on it:

Ya, I would look at the IR repeater solutions first. Although if you really want RF, Kenwood soverign, Kenwood 6070 all have RF. Dish PVR's have RF as well. And I am sure many other receivers/devices have RF too.

Jim:


The Kenwood VR-6060 and VR-6070 have RF remotes that also offer Learning capabilities.


I believe the entire Kenwood Sovereign lineup has RF/Learning remotes as well.

Thanks for your help.


I'm swimming in remotes and drowning in complexity....I think that adding another layer via the IR repeaters is not going to make my life any simpler.


I have looked at the Kenwood products since I received these posts and they seem to be the answer.


Thanks for your help. If anyone knows of another product line with RF, I'd appreciate knowing about it.

SRR is right - look at some of the Niles ones - they offer systems that may be cheaper than replacing your exsisting one - and can detect if equipment is on or off. The remotes are made to do macros such that the buttons you need to press are few.
