We recently bought a 75" TV, and the cable box can be mounted behind it but the cable remote won't work, as the signal won't bounce off the wall or ceilings as the tv is so big.
What IR can I install that works with a Telus 4k box, model # UIW4001 ?
Thank you for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you use the search query on that topic. There are several posts that can lead you in the right direction. I believe there are a few that posted what worked for them.
IR requires 'line of sight' so you will need to put the box somewhere that is unobstructed for this to work.
Normally there is a few inch gap for the TV stand that should be sufficient to get the IR signal to the box.
Using a different IR remote is unlikely to make any difference. Bluetooth doesn't have the 'line of sight' requirement.
Sorry....I should have said an IR 'EYE'...I need to buy an infrare red 'eye' that attaches to the box, and has an eye, which is a small 'bud', that attaches to the edge of the bottom of the tv.
Do you know of a brand that works with the Telus 4k box ?
As far as I know there is no way to connect an external IR receiver to the Telus 4K box. You will need to find a location for the box that has unobstructed line of sight. Possibly get a longer HDMI cable and put the box somewhere away from the TV?
