Is there any way to change channel without the box being on display?

Is there any way for the remote to work without the eetv box being on display? We are looking at having a unit built and would prefer all devices to be hidden away. I'm aware there is an app for phones but this isn't practical for small children. Is there a more discreet reader or an ee app on smart tv maybe? 

Many thanks

Hi @Osh1,

 

An Infrared remote control extender is what you need. If you do an internet search you'll find there are lots of different products available.

 

The retailer or manufacturer should be able to check compatibility with EE TV.

 

Thanks

@Osh1  The EE box works via infrared from the remote to the box so it works via line of sight.

It was mentioned to me that there might be a more discreet infrared reader available. A small infrared point that can be placed on the side. Ever heard of anything like this? 

Thanks
