    How can I control my Sky and DVD player through a wood cabinet?

    Getting my new tv tomorrow and it will be living on top of my sideboard. I will be putting the Sky Box and DVD player in one of the sections of the sideboard. Is there any way the controller will still be able to allow me to change channels, play dvd's etc.

    Help wil be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    sure you could get some sort of IR repeater

    helpful, have some rep.:roll:

    You need a ir repeater as said before but you can just use a sky magic eye though rf just for the sky.

    Drill a few strategically placed holes

    Well, I did on mine, but I custom made my Tv Unit!?

    If its in there to stop kids getting it. My FIL bought perspex for his and attached. Kids cant get equipment but you can still zap for channels etc

    We have Sky+ in our lounge & the box is in a TV cabinet but my hubby built it & it has frosted glass doors & the sky remote works 100% of the time through it. ;-)
