How can I have the channel control on my television control a cable box (rather than the television be on channel 3 all the time).

I have a cable box that is in a basement (the signal past the splice box is so weak it cannot support digital cable). I want to be able to control the channels of the cable box thru the television (i.e. if I change the channel on the television to channel 60, the cable box will switch to channel 60). The television is out of range for any other solution to work, maybe I could somehow get the signal to run over cable. Any suggestions would help. Maybe there is a box that works over i.r with the cable box?
