HI all. I have a goal of moving all of my equipment behind the wall my TV is mounted on to reduce clutter. I've been able to do this with everything using bluetooth except my receiver. The problem is that the remote is IR and it doesn't work behind the wall.
By behind the wall, i really mean in the bedroom closet, which is on the other side of the tv wall. It's maybe 10 feet away from the couch, around a corner.
The manual for the receiver says the following:
"Bi-directional Ethernet & RS-232 Port for 3rd Party Control Systems (Device Discovery, E-control, etc.)"
I think this is directly related to what i want to do. In my head, I'm picturing a mini-receiver, which displays the same info as the main receiver display (volume, etc), and has a bluetooth / IR port on it, which connects to the receiver itself.
Is there any piece of technology that will let me do what i want?
tldr: does a bluetooth or IR extension/addon exist for this receiver?
