IR repeater?

So I recently moved and the house came with a built in home theatre system including the tv which is built into the wall. I hooked up my box behind the tv but the ir signal from the remote doesn't reach the box so I had to move the tv to the side and on an angle so I could get the remote to work. My tv doesn't look very nice like this so I was just wondering if there are any options to fix this.

Something like an IR Blaster is what you'd be looking for, though finding one that'll work with the Optik box is going to be the hard part. This type of thing won't be provided by Telus.


If the TV is built into the wall, where did the previous owner put their cable box?

Use a mirror to reflect the light from the remote to the PVR.

That does sound tricky Braedo! Maybe give the Optik team a shout and see if they can come up with any ideas too!
