Remote control hardware
This is a continuation of my camp projector project. I'll have 2 rear projection systems up in a loft. I know I can control them via a serial port or infrared. I would prefer to have both projectors controlled remotely from 1 common infrared interface. However, I didn't see anything listed on this forum and can't get any manufacturer names/part numbers from Google search.
Can anyone recommend a couple of manufacturers/part numbers so I can check them out? I've received 2 quotes but there were for "bundled" systems; no part numbers given. I can understand that suppliers don't like customers to cherry pick their quotes.
You could purchase and build a hard wired IR distribution system relatively inexpensively.
I did this for controlling our two projectors and other IR controlled equipment in or booth from one IR receiver. Purchased it all at http://www.smarthome.com
