I want to install an IR System that will allow me to “hide” the HD/DVR Receiver, Blu-ray DVD Player in a hall closet. What type of system should I be looking for? and, is this a system that can be installed by a “Do-it-yourself person?

CE Pro’s Robert Archer says:
There are IR to RF solutions from companies like URC and Logitech that will support the solution you are looking from retailers like Best Buy.

CE Pro’s Jason Knott adds:
There is a DIY device from NextGen Remotes that converts IR to RF that will do this for you.
