Have the Logitech 650, programmed to work with the Hopper 3 and it does when pointing directly at the Hopper 3. I'm trying to use an IR extender/blaster that runs through HDMI to the closet. Also have a Onkyo receiver that works through the IR extender, but I can't get the Hopper 3 to work through the IR extender/blaster. Is there something I'm doing wrong or would the IR extender/blaster be incompatible with the Hopper 3? I've tried several position for the extender right in front just right of the panel on the hopper and several feet away. Any thoughts? If you think its the IR extender/blaster any recommendation for one that works with the Hopper 3? The Hopper 3 is version 52, should that matter.
