School me on IR repeater systems
Ok, I have my HDMI,component vid and 5.1 home runs complete and am ready to move my equipment into the closet. I have purchased an MX3000 and am working on getting it configured but for now was considering an IR repeater so original remotes can still be used.
It looks like Xantech is a good brand (and pricey). The IR receiver will be close to a 65" plasma display. Is this a big deal? I keep seeing the "plasma friendly" listed in design features for several products. Is it important?
Also, the distance from the IR receiver to the junction block is going to be around 70ft. Are they all capable of that? Most receivers have a fixed cable with a jack on the end that would have to be cut and wired into an existing CAT5 thats already run. I just want to buy what will work and minimize the assumptions here.
