    Hi

    Could someone please advise what I would need to do to enable a Virgin Box to be remote controlled whilst behind a closed cabinet door? Is there some kind of IR extender I can use?

    Many thanks

    Yeah I was thinking about using the smart phone app actually.

    Can you have multiple devices set up at the same time? IE one for me, one for the gf?

    You have up to two devices registered to watch TV anywhere (live TV), and any number of devices purely for controlling the TiVo
