Can I use an XiD with an IR Extender?

I'd like to place my XiD box in a cabinet. Is it possible to use an IR extender with this box? If so, what's the best way to do it? What kind of extender do I need? I'm fairly tech savvy but I've never messed with IR stuff before.

That's terrific. I'm going to pick up the box tomorrow and live with it a few days using voice commands before I bother with the IR stuff. Maybe I won't even need it. Thank you for the help, Andrew

If you can use voice commands it’s already RF paired and you can tuck it away.
If you need to use an extender instead this link shows the location to put the extender
