The ideal product for this situation would have been the IR-5011. The IR-5011 has separate IR receiver and IR emitter hub pieces, allowing you to run cat5 between the 2 at much longer distances. However, you can also modify the IR-5001 to go longer distances. You will need to cust and extend the IR emitter cable in the IR-5001 kit. This will add the extra distance you need. Please be aware the IR emitters are polarity sensitive and need to be spliced properly to work.
