    I have a friend with a TV in the bathroom all flushmounted can any one tell me If there is a remote mounted freeview box which could be mounted in the cupboard of her flat which uses a magic eye system to operrate the remote controls as the freeview box can't be mounted in the bathroom and the only cables at the back of the TV are the ariel and the power

    She sent it back to the manufacturer as she thought it had gone wrong when the area switched over to digital and it stopped working they can't upgrade it

    There are some Freeview boxes with a 'RF modulator' that you can find, albeit rarely and you would require some form of 'infra red extender' for control.

    The Triax Tri-Link (download the user manual) may be suitable for any receiver with a bit of faffing around (for the magic eye bit) in the bathroom? Depending on how the aerial cable distribution is routed they may be able to connect it to their existing equipment (e.g. a PVR in the lounge) rather than an extra receiver?

    Hi.
    Not cheap, but see if you can find the A2B Multibox 6T; multibox6t.co.uk - one box, six channels. Imagine a stack of 6 Freeview receivers in a stack, tuned to different channels, outputting as 6 different analogue channels... Use existing TV remote/controls to change channel, but only between the 6 configured...

    trouble is, going with a freeview box remotely controlled in the bathroom, how long will the actual remote last? there are loads of ways to be able to control it in the bathroom, but i would say for all the trouble its worth and then once its fitted the control gets dropped in the bubbles, maybe its time for a new wet room tv with freeview built in.
