    Hi all

    I plan to move my TV cable box out of sight, so i'm after a wired remote IR extender (around 10m). does anyone know where I can find one?

    I've tried amazon, ebay and maplin - and failed!

    Or is 10m too long?

    Why does it have to be wired, and why haven't you been able to find it?:confused::)
    There's a very wide choice of both types, that a Google search will find.

    I purchased this: IR LINK PRO - EBODE - INFRARED EXTENDER, PRO | CPC
    I have extended the IR receiver with a 20m CAT5e cable (the supplied cable was cut and I used choc-blocks to join to the CAT5e cable) - not elegant, but it got the job done and works perfectly.
