I've been trying to install my ReplayTV in the basement rack with the rest of my whole-house video lash-up - DirecTV, etc. Since I haven't yet got the IR wiring done, I've tried a Recotron DSC-IR100A. The signal is being transmitted no more than 15 feet from a room on the first floor to the room below in the basement. It seems to work for the first 3-4 commands, then stops working. When I move it downstairs and try it from just outside the equipment rack room, it works, and then bring it upstairs again, it works for a couple of commands then stops.
Anyone have any idea what's going on?
