Hiding Cable Box etc.

ross11April 20, 2009


I have a wall mounted LCD in my bedroom. I would like to put the DVD / Cable Box / TIVO in the bedroom closet across the room instead of on the dresser. I can probably get wires up to the attic, then down into the closet. It could be about 40 feet of wire with the ups and downs. Can anyone explain how I would make this work and what wires i would need to run?

Is there a better way?

Thanks for your advice and suggestions!

you can do it, BUT if the box is not RF enabled you will have to be able to see it to operate it with teh remote.

I installed this and for the most part have been pleased. However, at times it doesn't work as you would expect.

A friend has something similar with no wires. It sends a signal to a station in his garage and then that signal is transfered to a device similar to the ir250 that then operates the components. Do you want me to get the name?
