    What is the cheapest I can get into an IR repeater system?


    I want to control components all contained in one cabinet behind closed doors as well as the TV in the same cabinet. I would like the option to add an additional sensor/receiver later for Zone 2.

    I want something decent and reliable because I will be relying heavily on macros, but I will admit that the bottom dollar is driving the truck right now.

    I know you could get a pronto ng and the rf base station, but that would run you about $400, more or less. Not sure how much you want to spend.

    I use the RCA IR relay cones. They're not completely reliable, and they're somewhat vulnerable to interference, but I think you can pick up a set for around $40-50.

    The Terk Leapfrog IR repeater system for about $30 works for me! Mine also came with an additional IR emitter that you can place at another location!
