Xbox remote power ON

I have a softmodded original xbox, and it is located in my basement. It is a huge pain to go downstairs just to turn it on. I am looking for a solution. Originally I had planned to do WOL (wake on lan), but the nic doesn't support it. All I have to do it have something that acts like the front button: bridges two wires momentarily. Any suggestions

Did you try to hack it yourself?  Xbox Scene has a tutorial here
You need to just get a rc w/ reciever and just wire it in

why do you want tot turn it on from a distance away? you could just buy a RC kit on ebay (1CH remote) which consists of a relay on the recieving end. The remote works up to like 600 feet away. I bough a 4channel version for my tesla coil and I've very pleased with it. a one channel costs about 12 dollars including shipping.

any suggestions? (links)
well, here's one that's ending soon, but if I were you I'd look around, like maybe you want a 2 channel or a 4 channel for other stuff, they are only a couple more dollars
