wanting to put my receiver in closet

What is the part that I need so I can use my remote without pointing at it. I know there is something out there but I have no idea what to even search for. Trying to clean up my wiring and get all that stuff in the closet.

any help?

You can do wither an IR system, that has a receiver at the tv and ir emitters at the head end(closet) for devices. You would need a wire such as a cat 5 to run from the tv to the closet this way. Or you can get an ir to rf systems and go to wireless to the closet that way.

First option:

I have the Logitech Harmony 1000 with rf/infared
I love the remote, most of the time. It has been locking up quite a bit, and not charging sometimes. I need to see if there is a firmware update or something.

Logitech works good. sometimes you have to reset them by powering them down for a few minutes.all in all a good unit though.

thanks guys for the info.

I like the idea of just the remote but then again I know how I am with remotes . Maybe with a nicer system down the road I can seeing using one of those.

But I think I might give what 2K2 LS1 suggested and use the Xantech IR Hidden Link Kit. But keep the ideas coming.

Dang, that's pretty cheap for that.

I would recommend the Harmony 890 as well though!
