    personally i went for the total clean look and have all the electronics in a different room. with all the cables hidden behind a sound insulated stud wall. with an ir extender works great.

    Ok all this av stuff is new to. So what you are saying there are products out there that would allow me to put say an amp, youview box and a dvd player out of site may be under the stairs and just have an ir that would be able to operate them whilst sat in my nice comfy sofa?

    Having connected with hdmi cables etc

    That would be great. The onky issue I would see is changing dvd/cd so maybe I have that on show but hide amp and all the speaker cables. Time for a re think!

    Nice layout but building the floating must have taken awhile?
    Decisions! My preference is not too have any cables showing. For a temporary measure I may just put the
    Amp etc on the other side of the stud wall I will mount the tv on. Our bedroom is on the other side with fitted wardrobes. it will save having to buy loads of new cable. Our lounge and bedroom is on the first floor where I have a cupboard that I can put the av equipment in at a later date if it all goes well! I will just have to get some permanent power into the cupboard before I move it all.
    Which ir extenders are eorth looking at?
