IR control

Hi have new virgin box in kitchen which I also feed to my bedroom via HDMI splitter and then feed the hd picture to the bedroom via cat6 converter which has IR capability. I'm trying to change channel in bedroom but the IR isn't working. My question is do the new virgin boxes allow this? Or how else can I change channel in bedroom?.
Any help please.

Re: IR control

Assuming you have a V6 and you have paired it's remote, it uses RF and can operate from anywhere in your house.

Re: IR control

Thank you for answer. The box in the kitchen is hidden so I assume it's already on Rf mode. The bedroom is rather a long way from the kitchen so I guess a Rf signal can only travel so far. I will look into the virgin app and see if you can do it that way.

Re: IR control

Yes, the TV Anywhere app is a good way of controlling multiple V6s but be aware that you can't control the volume of your TV from the app as that need an IR signal directly to your TV.
