Hi,

 

Had an extra wire run from fireplace to media closet when the pre-wire was done.

 

Is there a general consensus of the best IR extender in this situation?  Looking to control basic stuff - Yamaha RX-V673, DVD player, Apple TV... 

 

Would appreciate some recommendations...

 

Thanks!

There is several options available.  

A search on Google for IR repeater or extender should produce some results for you.


As a Structured Cabling Installer and Tech our company go to is the Episode® Electronics 1x4 IR Repeaters ( http://www.snapav.com/p-1193-kit-ir-rptr-1x4.aspx ).

The Episode does pretty well even over longer runs and can handle most interference easily, (use the provide resistor if going over 50ft. or if you see interference on the line.)  It certainly would have enough IR buds for all of your equipment.

I don't know if they sell straight to consumers but do know they aren't the only game in town.  I am sure Monoprice would also carry something similar but I would certainly check the reviews.

Hope that helps.
