Send IR commands over HDMI cable

IR over HDMI

If a video source is placed far from the TV in your installation, then it’s difficult to control it using IR remote control. The Sewell InjectIR fixes that problem by sending IR signal over existing HDMI cable. It uses CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) channel and costs just $44.95. So, you don’t need additional wires or any wireless solution.

I’d like to mention some modern TVs might use CEC channel to route specified IR commends to the Blu-ray player or AV receiver connected via HDMI cable. But it works mostly with devices produced under the same brand.

Impressive home theater design

Home Theater

Probably the most impressive home theater I’ve seen in my life is built in Palm Beach, Florida. It includes an Entrance Area/Ticketing Booth, the Pirate Tavern/Lobby, where you can take a shot of rum between shows and the unique screening room with twelve sits which looks like a deck of a Pirate ship.

As I already mentioned that project is under construction. So, no any “live” pictures are available yet. Hope the home theater will have the same amazing look in reality as on rendered images.
