    This is a sore spot for me. Just having a remote is nice. But we’ve had remotes since at least 1970! Can’t we do better? And even if we can’t, you’d think that by now someone would have come up with a simpler system of moving set-top junk to another location. But Nooooooo!

    For most of us, we can’t even think of using a “IR Blaster” or “repeater” or anything. It seems that we must continue to live in the 1950’s as far as hiding our equipment goes. There is no easy way to place all that junk behind a wall or in a cabinet. And there certainly are no inexpensive solutions! That is, unless you want to do the DIY thing.

    … I said, it was a sore spot.

    I kinda of find it funny. If you have a lot of remotes you feel you have a lot of power over everything in that particular room but when you get a universal remote you suddenly have control over your house or maybe even your neighbourhood.
