Isaac, the issue is that the backend has the video capture card, and
the capture card itself has a special connector for a specific IR
receiver that comes with the capture card. The front-end doesn't
have the capture card, and therefore doesn't have the IR receiver
connected, so there's no way to backhaul the IR signals without a
really long cable from the capture card to the IR receiver at the
front-end or something else, like an X10 IR extender.
