My HT/HA PC is in a closet about 30 feet in front of the TV. In other words, if I am watching TV, the PC is behind me. I can easily get the transmitter on the outside of the wall so it can shine into the family room, and I think the UIRT should be able to transmit that far. My other remote controls easily control my AV equipment from that same spot. Would you agree? I'll be able to put the transmitter up high and it will have an excellent line of sight into the family room. Now, what I am really concerned about is the receiver. It would seem to me that the most natural place for it would be near the tv. I guess I could get used to pointing the remote over my head and behind me to do things, but... it just doesn't seem right. I can easily run any wiring from the PC to the TV area (ran conduit when building), but I know that this is well past the maximum USB cable length of roughly 16 feet. If I go the hub route, I'll probably need two of them, and I'll have to leave them in my crawlspace and figure out how to get electricity to them. Sounds like a lot of work. So, my question is, if you have your receiver behind you as I described above, how much does that suck? Or should I bite the bullet and get the receiver over to the tv where it belongs?
