I keep hearing IR being mentioned. What exactly is the use? Wouldn't an IR remote work in the HT room by simply being pointed at the HTPC? Or is this for people who want IR to work in every room of their house? In that case, wouldn't it be easier to just get a more powerful remote, like those DishnNetwork remotes that can be used on any floor?

Infrared is good with repeater systems when you want to hide electronics in closets, or other rooms and control them by a remote control. I use a Xantech system that does this. I relocated my equipment so all I see is a large fixed screen, no distracting LCD, or LED light. I also didn't like the kids and babysitters "re-calibrating" my system settings. Niles has a good setup also ( www.nilesaudio.com ).
