IR to RF converter

Hi Chris,
I saw your pages on RF transmitter and receiver. I even constructed the circuit and it works just as your video demonstrates :) . However, I would like to use this circuit to send remote control signals (which are infrared) from a closed room to a set top box on another room. In order to do this, the IR signal from the remote must first be converted into RF signal, which is applied to the RF transmitter. The RF receiver on the other room will receive this signal and then it will be converted back into IR which can be detected by the set top box.
Is it possible to incorporate the IR to RF converter with the transmitter and RF to IR with the receiver? Please help me with the construction of this circuit.
Thanks :)
