    I need to connect an optical remote control that is
    designed for being in front of a camcorder to work
    from behind the camcorder. Anyone know of an optical
    fibre that can run from the remote to the camcorder
    about 16 feet?

  2. If you mean an infrared remote, like is common with most VCRs and
    other A/V gear, you might check into Hidden Link and/or Micro Link
    receivers. They're primarily for home entertainment centers where you
    want to hide the equipment that responds to infrared remotes, but you
    might be able to make it work for your needs. It's essentially a
    receiver hooked to an emitter; might work for your purposes. Saw 'em
    in a woodworking catalogue (of all places) - www.rockler.com
