Find out how to hide your cable box or Digital Adapter and still use your remote with an IR Extender or IR Receiver.
How it Works
If you want to keep your cable box or Digital Adapter out of sight and still use your remote control to change channels, you’ll need to use an IR Extender or IR Receiver.
An IR Extender or IR Receiver is included with your Digital Adapter equipment. To use it, connect the IR Extender to the IR In input on the back of the cable box or Digital Adapter. Put the other end of the IR Extender somewhere that allows a direct line of sight between it and the remote.
Note: With some cable boxes, connecting the IR Extender disables the RF input on the front of the cable box. To avoid this, disconnect the IR Extender from the cable box when you’re not using it.
