IR to BlueTooth Remote control converter

I recently added an Apple TV box to my Home Theater. While I really like the offerings on the box and the signal quality, it has a Blue Tooth Remote control and my entire Home theater is operated from a single IR Home Theater Master MX850. It learns from components IR remotes and then you can create scripts to do complex instruction sets. Very nice. But it cannot transmit or learn from a BT controlled device like the Apple TV.

Does anyone know of a converter or solution to this problem?

According to Apple the AppleTV Remote does IR transmit and the puck has an IR receiver but it doesn't appear to work. Maybe I need a setting somewhere. I will keep researching this.

Found out this is not needed because there is a way to program tradional IR remotes to the ATV. I'm all set up now.
