You can put it in a cupboard but then you need a special extension to make this work which you can get here

Once end (the main block) sits outside the cupboard to receive the remote signal then you run the cable into the Tivo and stick it on the IR part to send the remote signal too it.
This then allows you to put the Tivo in a cupboard
