You need a nap, a nap and a cheap IR repeater. It ain't rocket science, as they say around here. If the remote is IR, the put a receiver in your big room, and the transmitting in line of sight of the dust collector, and open a beer. I have used a Recon (I think?) and a Terk Leapfrog. The Leapfrog cost about $50 but works much better than the $20 Recon. But, if you only need on/off, I would try the cheap one from somewhere with a good return policy. My problem was it was not overly accurate - channel 753 was 73, then 53, then 3, then I threw the remote, yatta, yatta, yatta.

In fact, I still have them and don't use them. I'm keeping the Frog for use to control the outdoor speakers (since my RF connection is broken to zone 2 now that I have a HT!). But if I can find the various plugs and eyes, I'll send you the old one. If it works, great, if not, trash it. PM me if you are interested. For the price you might prefer not to wait for met to find it! That layered thing can be tricky.

Also, look at Smarthouse (or smarthome?) .com. They have tons of options for IR repeating if you want to go upscale with it - nice wall plates, etc.

Thanks Charles! I very much appreciate the offer, but let me research it a bit more. I just read a post where a guy "removed" the remote section off the unit and just wired an extension and plug onto the now-exposed wires.

If I go that route, I can just have the electrician install a remote-operated switch on the circuit before the outlet. I think. \:\)

Again, thanks to both of you.... let me research it a bit more.

Maybe I should just install a window to the "room". Naaah, I wanted to build clamp racks over that wall! \:\(

Mark, why not get one of those portable clamp racks with wheels? that way you can always put it in your way.

Smarthome has some ethernet controlled IR transmitters. I have one living out in my desk that I used in our old office to remote control an AC unit in the server closet.

Mark,

Have you looked at the "Long Ranger" (Sounds like a porn movie) from Penn State Industries. It's an RF remote that I use on my DC. They have models for 110V or 220V. It works great. No need to point it to the DC to turn on/off. I only wish my DC was as big as yours \:\(
