    my crt tv in the bedroom went bang sat. nite which gives me the ideal opportunity to replace it with a screen hanging on the wall. i will be able to run all the cables thru the wall behind the screen into a wardrobe where the power outlets are but have ltd space for media boxes ,sky boxes etc in the bedroom. i was thinking hitachi but wondered if anybody had any firm views on plasma vs lcd. also being totally useless diy'er anybody have any good ideas about cheapest suppliers and fitters in essex area.thx guys. martin.

    I think the Hitachi has the remote receiver on the panel, which is then routed to the media box. so you could have the media box through in the next room no problem.

    There are also a few different ways of piping IR signals - check out the remote forum on here.

    You can pipe IR signals to control kit in another location using IR remote extenders (I just happen to have a few for sale in the classifieds forum :) ).

    If you just want to control a Sky box and nothing else then a TV Link will probably be the easiest and neatest solution.
