Has anybody been successful in controlling their V+ box from another room?
I'm new to VM after moving from SKY a month ago. I had the V+ installed in a bedroom but also wanted the functionality of operating it from another bedroom also. I used to do this via the SKY magic eye. I'm fine with my 2nd box as it's Tivo and I can use the remote app on my phone.
I bought a Powermid XL infra red extender but it only works if I turn the light on when I want to use the remote. Is there anything that anyone else is using that works? Before I return the V+ and get a 2nd Tivo.
