    Can anyone steer me to a place to buy a remote controlled motorized curtain rod?

    Also, I would like to have a satellite IR receiver to mount under my screen to control my gear. Any sources?

    Do a Google search on “motorized curtains.” I got several hits that looked promising.

    P.S. Welcome to the Forum!

    Gary,
    I took a regular wall/box mounted Niles target and put it behind the grill cloth at the top of my screen. It works like a champ, and is totally hidden.

    Gary,
    Try here:

    I recently saw this link posted over at the AVSforum. I don't have experience with this unit. You can go over to AVSforum.com and search for member "kmulder" (I think). He installed this unit in his impressive Theater. He can offer details. Hope this is of help to you.
    Good Luck,
    Charlie

    Smathome.com sells some too. They run 20% coupons 1-2x each year.
