Sound bar blocks IR receiver on TV Bravia 850E

Hi all,

I’m sure this is a common problem, but I cannot find good help.

I have a 65 inch Bravia 850e and am using a Yamaha soundbar that sits in front of it.

Due to the low location of the IR receiver on the Sony tv, I’m unable to control my TV from the couch without wildly extending my arm.

What are my options here?

I tried using the supplied IR blaster cable in various IR ports to no avail, but I assume that’s not a standard use case as it is probably meant to transmit and not receive.

Am I able to use something with the IR in port to put a sensor in a different location? And if so, what sort of sensor do I need?

Thanks very much for the help.
