Default Motorolla DCX3200?? Need IR receiver?

I'm so new at this don't even know how to begin. I just got my new samsung 7100 and it's mounted and the cords are fished through the wall now....but I don't want to look at the high def box I got from my cable company. The DCX3200 has a port in the back for me to plug in a IR piece and hang out discretely so I can tuck the big black away behind a door and point my remote to it to change channels. My smaller non-HD cable box has one but it doesn't work on this HDbox. The cable company didn't know what I meant. I called Best Buy and they said it was called a "universal remote control receiver" but they don't sell them. Does anyone know where I can find this thing? Am I even close to explaining what I'm looking for? Sorry for this first attempt. Thanks for any help.

Default Thanks for the response...

I haven't fully read the link but upon first glance, it looks like it may be more than I need....I knew that there would be some product out there but this looks like it could control my neighbor's TV. Thanks for knowing what's out there since I sure don't. I'm sure this would work since it would be in the same room, just behind a cabinet. Wow- thanks again.
