So, it appears that the LG Magic Remote ONLY USES IR. Is this true? So, line of site is needed!! :-( Is there no way to us RF? This seems very short-sighted to me. All my past remotes for the past few years all could use RF so that the DirectTV boxes could be in a closed cabinet. Looks like not an option for the LG remote. Can anyone confirm? TIA

    draimist, the magic remote will be IR and Bluetooth. For universal control, it would use IR.
