IR to UHF converter

Dish network used to have a "kit" which is "discontinued " to convert a IR receiver and remote into a uhf remote so that the receiver could be out of sight.
Pt. Number ES123804
Anybody know of an alternative?
With having hopper with joey in the home the "only" receiver allowed to used with the tailgater is the 211k or v series which is IR.

Any help would be great.

I want to be able to put it in my basement.
An ir extender won't fix that no?

Uhf remote doesn't "need" to see the receiver to change channels whereas a IR does.

Turbs, I have been checking out the same thing for several weeks.
The one I have seen recommended most is this one:
Amazon.com: Next Generation Remote Control Extender: Electronics

Have even seen some satellite dealers recommending it.
