How to Hide your Cable or DirecTV box and Have Factory IR Remote Control Work

If you are trying to hide your cable or DirecTV box from visibility and still have the factory remote control still work you will need to install and connect an Infrared IR repeater kit. The kit allows a receiver IR eye to pick up and transmit the remotes IR signal through the powered IR kit. An IR emitter also connected to the IR kit gets stuck to the front of the DirecTV or cable box where the boxes Infrared receiver is which will complete the IR kit installation having the IR codes pass through the IR kit to the hidden equipment. The IR kit relays any IR signal not limiting you to just a DirecTV or Cable Box. See link below for an cost effective IR kit.
