Using box in Cabinet

Message 1 of 2

I just purchased a new TV cabinet that has doors on the bottom where the cable box is. I was wondering if I can use anything so that I can still use the remote but keep the cabinet closed? I have a DVR (it is a 7 series) Thanks.

You can call Verizon and ask them for an IR extender.  It has a connector on one end and a remote IR eye on the other end.  Or, you can use what I use to control the STB,  DVD, player, etc, in a bedroom closet:


It converts your remote's IR signal to RF and then back to IR on the other side of walls, doors, etc.  Works great.  Lasts a long time.  🙂
