    I want to control a direct TV receiver from another room. I am thinking of running an IR receiver from the box to a TV in another room.

    Question - how can i connect the IR Reciever so that it uses the same signal as the direct tv box? I think there are universal remotes that can sync w/ IR signals in other remotes. Anyone know of any good universal remotes that can do this?

    What would be the best way doing this? I DO NOT want 2 boxes, it's a waste of money.

    Also, once I run the wire, where can i connect it as an input to the direct tv box?

    nevermind guys, i got my question answered in the MF.

    the box should have an RF mode built in, so I just need to buy an RF remote & I'll be good to go :bigthumb:
