btw I just helped a friend install one tonight, they are very nice! Wish the remote was RF and not IR though; he has it in a storage room behind his plasma screen. Anyone know of a cheap IR repeater?

Define cheap. You might just be better off buying one of those extender kits from Radio Shack.

I remember reading that Engadget couldn't get an IR blaster to work with the Apple TV. I would like to get one working, but I'm not sure what kind to even buy.

The frontal LED and IR pickup is similar to the mini, but it gave us some trouble since we used an IR distribution system (so we can stash our gear in the closet). The Apple TV just refused to work with it. To make sure it was the Apple TV, we put our MacBook Pro in the closet and the same IR blaster fine to control Front Row. Since these IR systems are not the norm, we did all of our testing with the Apple TV on top of our TV instead. Ah well. (We pinged Apple, and they said prior to launch they tested with a variety of IR blasters, extenders, etc., and haven't ever had any problems -- so maybe it was just our rig.)
