Samsung Smart Remote- Virgin Tivo in Cupboard


Novice Member

Hoping someone may be able to help! I've looked all over the internet with no luck!

I have just bought a 50 inch Samsung UHD tv. It comes with the smart remote and I have my Virgin box and Xbox connected.

The smart remote controls both of these great until I shut the cupboard door where they both live!!

Is there anyway to get this to work? I dont even quite know how the remote works.

Is it infared with the tv and then the tv sends out another IR to the tivo box?

I tried an IR extender with no luck? I also tried connecting a bluetooth IR repeater but the tv doesnt pair with it.

I have the tivo remote which works with the cupboard shut but ideally I would just use the one remote.
