Sharing HDPVR 530/630 between rooms

Hi, I have both  the 530 and 630 HDPVR boxes in my home. Currently the 630 is powering our main TV in the lounge, and the 530 is in our bedroom.

 

We are currently remodeling our house and this is creating an office space on the other side of the bedroom wall.

I know that I can split the HDMI signal from either box and run it through the wall via HDMI over ethernet wall plates to my office.

 

What I noticed, is that these wall plates also come with an option to extend IR functionality through ethernet also.

 

Can I set this up on either of my boxes (preferably the 530), and if so will any IR extender work or do I need a specific item?

 

I am happy to share the signal between the bedroom and office as i is unlikely that both TVs will be in use at the same time, I would like to be able to avoid travelling between rooms to change the channel if at all possible.
