Hi guys, very straightforward question. My Yamaha rx v367 amp is inside my media unit but in order to use the remote the door needs to be open today.....ridiculous. Is there any IR related device I can purchase for this old amp to operate the it with the media unit door closed?


I've read numerous info online but being an AV novice I don't really know if I can do this for my device.


Your advice is appreciated


Cheers
Matt

You need some sort of IR extender or IR blaster I think they call it. Basically is a receiver, re-transmitter pair for folks precisely because their equipment is not in the same room. Hopefully the transmitter is small enough that you can just double-tape it to the doors.

If your cabinet is completely enclosed, you would be much better served with the door open when in use to allow as much ventilation as possible to your electronic components. Otherwise, with the door closed, one option is to buy an IR extender kit and pass the cable out the back hole (for cables/wires) and around to the front of the cabinet.
