Extending RF Range of Comcast X1 Remote XR11

Hi all. I am trying to find a solution to extend the range of a Comcast X1 remote model XR11. My cable box is two floors below the TV. A Crestron system controls the remote control heavy lifting, but AFAIK there is no way to initiate a Comcast voice search using a Crestron remote, so I'd like to keep using the XR11 for that. Unfortunately the cable box is too far away.

I have read that the X1 remote uses the ZigBee RF4CE to communicate with the cable box, and the voice search uses voice-over-RF4CE. The chips are from Texas Instruments. Does anyone know of a solution (like a repeater or range extender) that I can put halfway between cable box and the TV to facilitate the remote communicating with the cable box? Or a device that I could install where the TV is and connect via Cat5 run to the cable box? Or a way to get Crestron remotes to enable voice control (although I realize that this is the wrong forum for that last one).
