comment Is it possible to de-gloss paint?
The matte on top of gloss will de-gloss it (as will satin). It might not be truly matte, but it should be significantly less shiny. I would wait a few days after the gloss is applied to ensure that it is fully dried. Also, on average, matte finishes are often less durable than other finishes, so if you can live with satin, that might give you better long term results.

comment How to hide DVR for a wall mounted TV
You can also get a universal remote control with RF controls (radio frequency, no line-of-sight required) that include an IR blaster (infra-red, used by standard controls, requiring line-of sight), placed near the DVR/cable box and that converts the RF back to IR.
