I've got one media center computer in the basement with basically a big splitter sending audio and video to all the tvs in the house. Each tv uses the same microsoft remote, and the ir signal is transmitted to the basement using powermid -like ir extenders.mdesmarais said:hgupta1 said:the media center computer is always on, and so the remote is the only way I turn on the TV.
Does the media center computer see all the IR from the remotes? Or are you just using the same remote in multiple locations, even those without media center computer(s)?

Which is the best CR Magnetics current sensor to get for connecting to an Elk M1?electron said:To detect the state of a TV, you could use CR magnetics current sensors. If there is some sort of lightsource on the back of the TV (status LED, light coming out of the back of the tv), you could also use a CDS photocell. Both type of sensors can be connected to the Elk M1.
