I am helping a friend put set up a surround sound (HTIB) and DVD/BluRay player but all his wires feed into a closet adjacent to his living room (where his TV/Speakers will be). I am thinking of options for him for controlling his receiver/DVD player. His satellite box is currently in that closet and is controlled via RF remote (supplied by Direct TV, thus, not a Harmony RF remote).
Does anyone here know if an RF extender will work with the Direct TV RF remote? I'm trying to avoid purchasing a Harmony RF remote and RF extender if possible....but will if I need to.
Not sure an IR option is feasible at this point.
