Hello Shaw'ers,

We recently switched to shaw and got the new Gateway system, the latest Aris XG1 gateway.  The portals to this unit have IR extenders, but the actual PVR DVR box (ie the XG1-A) does NOT. 




In reading, I see that this unit, for US cable companies, has the ability to enable RF remote services, versus the line of sight IR remote that is used here. 

I want to hide the box behind my TV, but need a way to extend the IR and/or enable RF mode so that the box can be out of sight... Any thoughts?
