Does anyone make an adapter that will convert an RF remote signal to IR or Bluetooth so that stereo/video components can be controlled when line-of-sight is not available?

I've used a remote extender like these:

Mine looked similar but was cheaper because it worked for only one remote. For what it did, it worked very well. Basically, you replace a battery in your existing remote (AA or AAA only) and make sure the "base station" has line-of-sight with the device you want to control.

Before I went iPod/iJet, this was my solution for CD-player control during shows.

best,

I own the Turk unit in the above LINK and it works great.

I thought the whole purpose of RF was avoid the line-of-sight requirement...

Thanks, and I checked the link... I checked the link...

I am hoping that there is some method for doing this that eliminates the line-of sight requirement. We have a videoconference setup at work that uses small IR LEDs that attach directly to the sensor on the controlled components, thus eliminating the "line-of-sight-between-the-base-station-and-the-controlled-device" requirement. If I can find this type of equipment, I won't have to leave the cabinet doors open during operation.

Base stations can go inside the cabinet, and most of them come with the wired LEDs that you saw.
