    Anybody have a canonical list of ways to control a S2SA TiVo in the next room with no line-of-sight?

    Jim, those aren't of much use if you can't see what you're controlling. ;)

    :rolleyes:

    But you're right, I guess he/she could have a video feed already established. Then Jim's suggestion would be adequate.

    I assumed that he had the appropriate A/V connections to the remote TV. :)

    Thanks for the replies, folks.

    I should have been clearer - I'm looking for a way to put a plasma on the wall, put the TiVo in the next room on the other side of the wall and just run the S-Video + audio through the wall. The IR-RF Leapfrog should do nicely for me.

    Many plasma and LCD TVs emit lots of IR noise that may interfere with the IR remote repeater. A better solution may be to buy a RF remote that has a basestation for emitting the IR signal.

    I have a Home Theater Master MX-600, which emits RF, so no extender is needed (cuts down on the wiring :), only the RF-receiver by the TiVo.

    It works great with TiVo, I can highly recommend it.
