I am looking to pick up an Xbox 360 to tuck away in the closet and use solely as an MCE extender. The closet is behind the wall that the TV is mounted on, so there will be no line of sight. What's the easiest (cheapest!) way to route the IR signal into the closet? I have an RF extender (but no RF remote) with some of those cables that came with my Harmony 890 and Hauppauge Tuner. The cables have a 3.5mm jack at one end and two sticky leads that go on the components' IR receiver at the other. Can I use these somehow; maybe cut one and splice the leads together? I no longer have the Harmony 890, so that's not an option. My current remote is IR-only.
I only have to go about 6 feet, but the wall is in the way. I have access through the wall for my HDMI cable, power cable, etc, so tucking another wire in there is no problem.
