In a bind here. I am in the process of finishing my HT room, and due to it's smallish size, I tentatively thought I would cut a hole in the wall and house the AV rack in the neighboring laundry room, with the front door of the AV rack in the HT room. Problem is, the other room is a laundry room, and can get kinda noisy is there, and I don't want the sound to trickle through it into the HT room. Secondly, light will shine through my wall in the cracks...and lastly, I don't like the idea of cutting out the wall if I don't have to. If I could house the whole AV rack in the laundry room, and control from the HT room somehow, that would be great. Because it's just a short distance away, I don't feel I need to buy expensive wireless systems for it (Niles etc). Isn't there some sort of remote I can use that will control it on the other side of the wall? any suggestions???
