    Hey all,
    I'm moving into a new place, and looking at mounting the TV on the wall, and there isn't room for an entertainment unit beneath it. However, there is a cupboard off to the side, and cables should be able to run through to it.

    Just wondering what is recommended to utilise as a IR extender? I was looking at something like this; https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/USB-IR-...7401c|ampid:PL_CLK|clp:2334524&frcectupt=true

    It would be used to control the Foxtel IQ4 and Telstra TV which will be in the cupboard. TV IR will be visible, as well the soundbar.

    Doesn’t the iq4 have a Bluetooth remote ?
    And buy the enhanced remote for the TTV which is also Bluetooth..

    These can be pretty touch and go sometimes signal wise... just sayin'. :)

    Not all HDMI splitters play nice with Foxtel either... need one that strips HDCP fwir.

    Sorry, no, you will need the IR extender.
