    I notice from the pictures you guys have taken of your Plasma's that most of you have placed your SKY boxes inside cabinets.

    Can you please explain to me then how you change the channels on SKY. Do you just simply open the cupboard ? :suicide:

    Or have you come up with wonderful way of changing channels ? ;)

    You can get RF (Radio Frequency) remotes that can transmit through walls etc. There is an RF version of the the Pronto available AFAIK.

    Another method is the install an IR receiver outside the cabinet which runs to a distrubution box which then feeds IR senders that you attach to the IR sensor on the kit you want to control.
