    Ok, i have gotten additional funds ( :clap: ), and am FINALLY going to update my HT system. Im going to have all my components hidden behind doors, and i need a simple way to repeat the IR signal. If this matters, these are the parts that will need to be controled:
    Onkyo TX-SR601 Reciever
    Sony 5Disc CD Changer
    Onkyo DV-SP500 DVD Player
    GoVideo 2deck VCR
    General Instrument (or Motorola) DCT (for AT&T/Comcast Digital Cable)
    Sony PS2 Remote
    Sony Trinitron TV

    Heres the pic: http://brentsfunnypage.tripod.com/ht.jpg
    (sorry, digitalpose is down AGAIN, so i have to use tripod, unless some one wants to host it for me :clap: )

    I want it to be wired, the "reciever" will be mounted just above the pic, in clear view (i want this as small as possible), and the parts will be under the TV, except for the DCT, TV, and PS2, so i'll need multiple "senders." The parts are also very close to the doors, so there really needs to be one sender per component..

    Zap, this might be your field :lol: :D

    I would say a IR darlington hooked up to an IR led either straight, or through a transistor.

    as conkbolt of doom said, I guess a simple ir led (or even more of them) in series with a ir transistor (aahH! what's those called again??)...

    You might need a amplifier though... that could be made of a OPAMP...

    That circuit I posted needs only a handfull of components and they all are easily available from almost everywhere. Don't really know why we call this section modding or anything if people are not ready to make few solder joits. ;)
