Your projector is ceiling mounted in a exterior-ventilated hush box. Your 2.35:1 curved screen is back-lit with mood-appropriate LED lighting. Your electric-recline theater seats have both heat AND massage. Your popcorn machine uses the finest extra-virgin oil and you clean it twice a day.
So why in the world are you killing your home cinema suspension-of-disbelief with all of your A/V components in plain sight? Oh, IR, that’s why ...
How about an IR repeater system? Not a whole lot of money left in the budget? Good thing Buy.com has the Cables To Go Remote Control Repeater Kit for a $31.99 and free shipping, 64% below MSRP.
This kit includes includes the repeater control box, single IR receiver/target, two dual-eye emitters, and power adapter. The kit is easily expandable to control 12 or more devices and compatible with wired-IR input/output found on many higher-end A/V components.
Now you can hide those A/V components out of sight so you can really enjoy the crisply popped kernels that only a squeaky clean popper can pop.
