I am using a magiceye to "catch" the IR signal as my sky box is hidden away in the cupboard. I am looking to buy a Slingcast which I also want to hide in the same cupboard but I am unsure whether the IR repeater for the slingbox will work if pointing to the sky box in the cupboard or if when the magiceye is used via the cable then the "front of sky box ir receiver" is disabled and thus will not work.

Any advise is welcomed.
