For a rear mount like this, either the user will have to get in line of sight of the 'receiver' behind the TV to operate, or bounce the IR light from the remote off a surface to the receiver. IR can bounce off some color and surface types, especially a mirror, so on a technicality a receiver can be operated while out of sight if the remote can bounce off a surface to the receiver.
