Remote Extender, SKY HD, DVD, PLASMA


Active Member
OK, This is what i need to do.:smashin:

I am wall mounting my plasma in my living room and running all the cables directly into the office which is the adjoining room behind the plasma.

In the office i will be having sky HD and my home cinema unit so they are not on show in the living room as i want this as minimalistic as possible.

I need a cheap way of controlling the full functions of SKY and the Home cinema from the living room so need some kind of remote IR extender, but this needs to be IRDA i believe, as i think this is what sky uses?...this also needs to be discrete.

Your recommendations will be much appreciated!:lease:

Sky doesn't use IRDA mate, NTL/Telewest cable boxes do though.

This is a good example of a simple IR extender that should work as you describe, the Powermid series are highly regarded as some of the best and most compatible around.
