So we will be building a new house in a few months and we will be putting our AV equipment in the garage with cables going the the TV's with IR receivers / blasters for IR remotes, However I believe Xbox and Apple tv remotes use bluetooth (NOT IR) the bluetooth signal would no be strong enough to reach the garage. What should we do? is there a similar product as an IR blaster / receiver but for bluetooth? How do we extend the range?

 

 

 

Thanks,

I would use an app. to control the Apple TV (or a learning remote - something like a network connected Logitech / RTI whatever way to go)...

 

If you do manage to extend your XBox controller so that it works, I'd check if the lag means it's usable.

 

Test at home before going ahead with the plan... that way, once you know what works or does not, you can adjust.
