IR or All-in-One Remote Control?

I finally rid myself of a Bose Lifestyle 28 and have moved on to building my own set up. Since I'm basically starting over, I decided to move my components to a closet behind my living room. The TV is mounted over the fireplace and I have an HDMI connection from the TV to the receiver (Pioneer VSX-1021). I am also running a Panasonic BDT-210 blu ray player, an HD-DVR DirecTv box and Apple TV through the receiver. What type of remote set up would be best in this situation? I don't know much about the IR repeater conversation, so any help would be appreciated. Also, do I need an all-in-one? If so, what is the best option right now?

An all-in-one is really convenient because you can program just one remote for the whole set-up. An IR repeater is just extending the reach of the remote you currently have and it is convenient if you are trying to conceal your equipment. You will still need different remotes for each equipment if they are not all the same.

An all-in-one is more remote to rule them it were.
