How To Control Cable Box From Another Room

Hello. I have a cable box/DVR and have just installed a second TV in the kitchen adjacent to the living room where the main TV and cable box are located.


I would like to control the cable box remotely from the kitchen in addition to using the remote in the living room.


Is there a RF controller I could use instead of the IR remote (that requires line-of-sight transmission)?  Or an alternative solution?
