IR repeater to fire K01?

I need to trigger K-01 from 30 feet away, and not necessarily from the front where the port is located. Since the camera is IR only, I am thinking of an Ir repeater, like this one. Has anyone tried something like this and does it work? I am open to other ideas as well.

It is a standard IR signal, no different from any TV or other entertainment equipment, so it should work fine. I don't know about that particular one but the on the repeater I've seen the emitter must be directly against the receiver of the device or it won't work well, so you'll have to tape the emitter to the camera.

I haven't tested my K-01 for range, but a small sheet of shiny aluminum foil taped at the proper angle lets me use my IR remote from well away from and behind the camera.

YMMV

I used a folded sticky note for this purpose in my ist DS days.
