View Full Version : Custom front for SB - how will it affect the IR?

I'm thinking ahead here but when I get my sb I would ideally like to mount
it into the front of a row of cupboards. In order to make the install as
flush as possible I was considering the following:
Mounting the sb up against the back of a cutout with a clear screen (glass /
polycarbonate / ?) held in place by a metal frame on the front of the
cabinet.

I know that a few people have done stuff like custom cases/installs before
but I was wonering whether sticking another piece of glass or something in
front of the SB screen would affect the IR and/or anything else?

Thanks
David

If it's clear, it shouldn't have any effect.

If you've got a digital camera with an LCD screen that can be used for
framing a shot, then you can test it. Turn on the camera and point the
remote at the lens. Look at the screen and press one of the buttons and
you should see the LED on the end of the remote twinkling. Now try with
your prospective custom front in front of the remote. If you can still
see it lighting up, it should work.
