The good news is if you are able to route some cat5 over to the tv somehow you can attach an emitter to it. I have a run of 35 feet plus emmitter and extender connections to my projector with no signal issues.
That could be an option... I have an HDMI cable that comes out of the wall right behind the TV - a piece of cat5 could be routed through there pretty easily.
On my Mitsubishi 73" I think the IR receiver is actually behind the screen, so maybe mounting the emitter to the back of my center channel speaker that sits in front of the TV stand would work...
In this image from when I was relocating my equipment you can kind of see what I am looking to do. The emitter/mini-blaster would go on the the wall either where that curtain is hanging down on the right, or up at the top of the shelves on the right where the curtains that will cover the rack will be mounted.
