If you are going to go to the next room you have a few options one is a wired IR repeater that hard wires from a receiver in the listening room and has flashers that are either in the cabinet or mounted in a vantage point where they can flash the whole system. This would be a Niles or similar and can cost a couple hundered dollars before you are done. The other is a IR to RF receiver in the listening room and a RF to IR transmitter aimed at the equipment. If your cabinet is easily seen by the transmitter this works well and no wires. Expect to spend about 60-80 dollars. I have both in my house, the Niles runs the main system and the IR/RF-RF/IR system is for my SAT receiver to be controlled from to back-fed TVs on in my office the other in my garage and they work well. They look like little cones and you can get them from most electronic stores, radio scrap or crutchfield. These really do a good job and rarely mis fire.
