Well obviously I don't know the layout of your house. It might be as  
simple as putting your machine in a closet on the other side of the  
BR wall and just putting one small hole with coax, audio cable and  
the IR pickup wire.

Or it might be $1000, as you said. That's why I said "have you  
considered?", not "do it".

The cable company is ordering perhaps thousands of units that use  
custom-designed chips and cases. We are using general-purpose  
computers bought in single quantities. There is a huge difference and  
what costs them little can be a big expense the way Myth users do it.

Still, you have received some good advice here and I'm sure you can  
work it out.
