I'm not a Savant dealer, but I did IR over CAT5e last week 180ft using 4 of the conductors.  I think it was the first time I've sent IR over twisted pair in 5-6 years, but worked without issue.

Make a note to contact me if you take IR a long distance and it doesn't work. A resistor or two can be used to clean up an IR signal when distance and capacitance have messed it up. You might need a scope if simpler things don't work.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
