I was pretty lucky, the power center I recieved Christmas2011 came with an IR repeater and a pile of cables.
I'll be installing it soon, I had to install my satelite DVR behind a cabinet door when I installed my new amp.
I should have installed it then. I have to aim around my center channel to turn on the TV. It bugs the wife so its all good.
Thinking about co-locating my 4 powered Paradigm subs between my LRR and my LR.
A tower of power.
