I guess the ULTIMATE experience would be for one to carry their actual remote control with them and for example an Amazon Fire Stick, plug it in to any HDMI TV and start flicking through the channels. If anyone has used a Slingbox App on Amazon Fire or WD box they will know it is quite frustrating working through the layers of menus. I would love to be able to take my physical remote control with me and find some sort of Infra Red repeater which will send the remote IR signal to my DVR at home over the Internet. I have found this, does anyone know if it will fulfill my need? Or does anyone know of a product which can work for me?
Yes, the IrAnywhere from Keene Electronics does this for me. Not the easiest to set up, but it works. Why Sling doesn't put this circuitry directly into a Slingbox I have no idea. KEENE IR ANYWHERE IR OVER IP MODULES (PAIR)
