So I have the opportunity to purchase a TV from a friend but he says that the IR receiver on the TV is broken, thus rendering the TV remote useless. A local shop gave him a quote of $75 to fix it. The TV is otherwise at a very good price, but I'm wondering if there is a way to get around the broken IR receiver? I was thinking of some kind of IR receiver that would attach to the TV and route the signal from the remote to the TV. Would appreciate any help on this issue.
