Hi guys

finally getting all the cabling in place for rennovations. One of things we are trying to achieve is less vissible clutter of electronic AV kit like MySky Hdi, yamaha amp etc by putting them away in a cupboard. Both of the named devices generate a fair bit of heat.

Will be interested in others experience in "hiding" this kind of gear and what issues they have faced and any suggestions.

BTW we are thinking of using ios devices via wifi or blue-eye as remotes for functionality.

We run all our AV equipment in the same cupboard as our hot water cylinder and do not use any fans and have not had a thermal cutout of any equipment in the 5 years it has been set up like this.  We also run our amp continuously for all audio.  For our clients though, we install cabinets with built in fans, or have extraction fans installed to get the air moving, some based around thermostats for the energy conscious.

If you would like to know more about the iOS control over IP, send us a PM.  We have a small business in Kapiti, and specialise in the IP control.  Blu-eye is a good product, we have installed many units but have found for the price you can't go past the following link for IR over Cat cables....
