I've got a small TV and a rogers box in my kitchen. The rogers box needs to be hidden in a cupbord to stay out of sight, and since the Rogers remote is IR only, this isn't a great solution.
I assume I need to buy a new remote and possibly an RF receiver / IR Emitter, but have no idea what I'm looking at cost-wise or quality-wise. Any advice would be appreciated.
I've already looked at some of the inexpensive IR emitters, but they all seem to have a dongle that has to be visible somewhere, and that won't work for this setup since it's a completely closed cupboard.
You don't need a new remote, just an IR repeater. Repeaters have been discussed many times in the forum - a search of this particular forum for "repeater", "blaster", "extender" etc. should find several previous threads. A search of the web for "IR Repeater" also provided me with several options. Here's one sample from the forum:
As stated in the first past, I don't want to use a repeater because I can't have anything sticking out from the cabinet. Obviously I know I need to have a video line going, but that was built in when the TV was installed (they ran the HDMI from the cabinet to the well behind the TV), but there is no way to leave a receiver sitting out in the open somewhere, just not an option.
So is there a reco on a RF receiver with an IR emitter and a paired Universal RF Remote?
