    Hi Guys,

    My system is hidden away and therefore the remote sensor on the Pioneer DVD player and Pioneer receiver do not work very well at all. Has anyone used a IR receiver and if so are they any good? What make would you recommend and how much would you recommend spending?

    Thanks.

    I use this one http://www.homeautomation.eu.com/product/29 there are cheaper ones such as the Powermid, or 'incupboard' hard wired ones.

    I got this one because you can select between 4(?) different frequencies, the cheaper version I had before was fixed and interfered with my Wireless alarm system:zonked:

    Works great, most of my kit is in a different room, this enables me to control Sky+, Amp, DVD player etc etc from the lounge.

    My transmitter sits discretely in the corner of the lounge and pretty much nomatter where I point the remote it picks it up.

    Hiya MJ

    Have a look at my thread in the Arcam forum entitled "Poor remote response".

    You can pick up a nice system in Maplin for just this purpose for £24.95!!

    Works like a dream.

    Cheers, Gerald. :)
