My xbox one is currently hidden inside a cupboard with my Kinect on top of a wall mounted TV. I am going to purchase the remote when its released as my girlfriend doesn't like using the voice commands or getting the controller out to switch on the tv. Am I right in thinking I wont be able to control my Xbox with the remote while its in the cupboard or can the Kinect pick up the signal? If not is there something I can purchase to extend the range of the Xbox ir receiver and place it somewhere discreet? thanks for any help.
