I'm trying to hide my D12-300 so you don't have to see it but I can't seem to find a way to change channels without a line of site. I don't see an IR port on the back so I assume that's not an option and it doesn't appear to support RF either. Does anyone have any ideas?

The IR sensor is on the front of the unit, and you are correct in that it does not support RF. You either need to find a way to have a clear shot at the front of the unit, or use some type of IR blaster/relay system where you can position a sensor in the open.
