No we havent looked into any type of universal remote yet. The remote that comes with the BenQ is excellent but I may need to get something universal just to eliminate the extra remotes.Sonnie said:I don't rightly remember if you have acquired a universal learning remote or not. Have you and if so what kind?
The Home Theater Master MX-800 which I have, can be purchased with an optional MRF-250 Single-Zone RF Receiver. This also has IR sensors that you can run to your components. For my projector I took one of the sensors and extended the wire on it to about 25' and fished it thru my pipe to my projector. In your situation... you'll have the RF Receiver up front and the equipment in back... so you'll have to extend several of the IR sensor wires. It comes with about 8 or so sensors.
This is the only remote I'm familiar with that comes with the RF Receiver and sensors... there may be more.
I was just talking to E in email earlier and he was recommending almost the same thing but the 850 model. The way he made it sound though was that with this remote and base I wouldnt have to run any sensors or wires.
But if I do need to, let me know what type of wire so I can do it now while the walls are unfinished.
