Doh - IR!  I was thinking it was one of the RF remotes, like I used to
have plugged into a random nearby computer in the next room...

Anywho, there's a 95% chance the dongle uses a serialish connection.
You should be able to lop off the connector and intersperse the usual
cat5/rj45 cabling.  Try it and see; if it doesn't work you can always
bail and buy an IR repeater or tuner-agnostic IR receiver.
