I just discovered & ordered a FLIRC - can't wait to get this thing running! I only wish I'd known about it sooner, instead of messing around with crappy Windows drivers for so many other iR remotes :)
Question: my HTPC is in a closet, around ~35 ft away from the TV (cable length). What would be the best way to wire this so that I can point the remote towards the TV, and have it operate the FLIRC? The best solution I found was USB-over-cat5e (something like http://www.amazon.com/SANOXY%C2%AE-over-Extension-Cable-Adapter/dp/B003BDMK3S); do you think that should work properly? Any problems to be expected, alternatives, etc?
Thanks in advance! :)
