I have DirecTV 1 HD DVR (HR23) and 3 DirecTV HD receivers in my garage (basement level).
The HR23 has a built-in RF antenna and each of the other 3 receivers have an external RF antenna attached so that I can use them with my DirecTV RC-65RBX Universal RF remotes throughout the house.
We are having a problem with the RF signal on my first and second floors. I was told by a DirecTV Case Manager that I will need a 4-channel RF signal amplifier (repeater, duplicator, extender or whatever you want to call it) in order to change the channels on my HD25 and HR23 receivers without any problems from my first and second floors, using the RF remotes.
Currently, I can only change the channels from my 1st floor and the signal is very weak; sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
I was told that there are wireless devices that I could plug into an electrical outlet somewhere between or on my first floor, in order to get the RF signal transmitted to the second floor. I tried a google search but don't really understand what I'm looking for. What I have seen is IR to RF to IR extenders but I have not seen anything that is strictly for RF signals.
I do know that I need something that is NOT line of sight.
Can you suggest any devices that would work for me?
