Ir extender help needed for cable box.

I have a couple cable boxes brand and model is Cisco Explorer 8640HDC.

I would like to hide the boxes and just have a IR extender (I think that's what it is called) just sitting by the TV that I can point at that will change the cable box.

The box has a 3.5mm IR jack for it on the back of it.
The cable company will not help me.

Besides the size of the plug are they all universal? or does it have to be model specific?.

It seems like the one Cisco makes or recommends is about $30.00-$40.00 part # 1004648

I was hoping I can get a cheaper on that will work.

Thanks

In most cases they are 3.5mm mono standard ir receivers.
So you could get a cheap one from ebay and try it.
