I always see these great pics flat screens on the walls and nothing else around them. No receivers, no cableboxes/DVR's.. What am I missing? I currently have Uverse so I have to have a box.. Seems odd to have it on the opposite side of the room.
Guessing a combo of fortunate (or planned) room configuration allowing components in a separate space and an IR repeater to make the remote work.
I'm going through one such "glamor-shots" makeover in my AV space - dumping the old fashioned side towers + bridge and TV stand entertainment center and wall mounting my setup including a 50" plasma and JBL LC2 center + L820 mains. Everything else is going in the storage space behind the wall on which I'm mounting the TV and speakers. Only problem I'm trying to figure out is where to park the subwoofer (and it's future twin) plus providing convenient access to the blu-ray player (loading/unloading discs and all). Details..
Still the greatest thing to happen since IR remote control. The award-winning NextGen Remote Extender is now improved and we call it Remote Extender Plus. Simply install our battery transmitter in place of one of the AA or AAA batteries inside your remote control, then point the receiver or attach the bright eye emitter to the components you wish to control. Now you’ve converted your existing IR Remote to Digital RF, giving you the freedom to go from room-to-room and control your components anywhere in the house.
The Remote extender plus gives you the ability to control two same brand components independently.
