This is what I'm after:

http://www.smarthome.com/81105K/Xant...1-80KIT/p.aspx


You might have noticed the bright red warning about HD3800 DVR cable boxes. Turns out that's what we have. I have no idea why this would require a Plasma proof set-up. That doubles the price. There are other things out there, but Xantech seems to be a top brand.


I don't really want to go RF. As I understand it I wouldn't be able to use my regular IR remotes with the things in the cabinet without an IR repeater like this.


Any suggestions?

I'm guessing that the cable box puts out some interference. The plama-proof IR receivers are designed to filter out that interference. It's possible that you could place a non plama-proof IR receiver far away enough from the box that it didn't matter. However, there is a chance that you can't.
