In a few weeks we're moving into a new house with a Blue Eye remote control/infrared repeater already installed. 

The current owners have a very complex but awesome looking set-up in the office whereby all their DVD/Playstation (?) music etc is controlled from a cupboard so I am trying to get to grips with the range of items we may need to purchase before/when we move in and how such systems work. 

One question I haven't been able to find an answer to is whether we can have the PS3 plugged into this cupboard, and then using the Blue Eye system, can we play in any room that is linked in, simply by choosing the right input and having the controllers?

Also, would we be running this through the (yet to be bought) receiver?

Thanks in advance!

PS3 uses Bluetooth I think, not infrared, s as long as the console is in Bluetooth range you should be sweet.

Thanks Non-Praying Mantis... that makes a lot of sense! Just tried it out by going to the other end of our current house and it seems to work pretty well through multiple walls/cabinet etc so here's hoping we can get it set up the way we want. One more thing off the checklist. 

Thanks again - appreciate your response :)

I found the PS3 starts to get really laggy and glitchey when its not in the immediate vicinity of the console. Not tried the PS4 over a distance yet.

I then went and got a playstation tv to try remote play on the other tv, and its laggy as. Cant even drive in GTA5 with it.
