    Sure, put a variable resistor inline with his speaker cables, drill a hole through his wall to your's and then attach a very long lead to it. i.e. CD-----Variable resistor-----Speaker

    Either that, or install msn messenger (or whatever you prefer) on a pc near your mum/dad and ask them to shout at him.

    ..or he is trying to hack my stereo...

    asumeing you live in the same house what about buying a universal remote and programing it while he is away, if he is in the next room maybe drill a hole in the wall?

    Two words: Universal + Remote. You could also head over to Tweeters and see if they have speaker dampners.

    And, of course, you could always talk to your brother. But that's just going out on a limb, and kind of weird.

    OT: Moxnix, when'd you change your signature? It gives the urge to find an old Atari machine and arouses me at the same time....

    I mean....nice sig.

    Edit: That was posted at the same time as the third and fourth posts (forgot the names already.) Apologies for the minor repeat.

    I don't think they make such an anmial for the PC.

    Remote controls use IR and you have to be in line of sight.

    I have a program for my Palm TT3 that enables me to use that as a remote, but it has an IR.

    I still have to be a certain distance and within line of sight.

    I've seen the remotes that go through walls, but they require a special receiver.

    Is he on a different power circuit in the house? When my brother turned up his tv or music too loud... I just popped the breaker and told him that he was using too much power turning up his music like that...

    The following link is so you can better understand how remote controls work.
    This one is for a TV, but they work pretty much the same way.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
