Is this installer correct?

Iím using a Tivo Slide Pro with my Roamio and a new Sony receiver. Iíve got it paired fine to the Sony but the range is very short and wonít work with the cabinet door closed. I asked the installer if he could get the volume working with more range. He said the Roamio does not have an IR out that could be used as a blaster to connect to the Sony receiver. Heís saying he needs to add an IR receiver to the Sony to get this working.

Is this correct?

He's correct about the Roamio, and everything reported here sounds very reasonable. An IR receiver would be my first thought.
