I have had 3 Harmony 676 remotes in my home for about 4 years, and I really love them. However, some of the buttons have worn and are not as sensitive any longer, so I decided to replace all 3.
I bought Harmony 650s, and programmed them tonight. I am pretty disappointed with the signal strength. It seems that I really need to have the remote nearly directly pointed to the equipment for my signal to be received.
This is most troubling in my basement theater, where the AV equipment is actually at about the 5 o'clock position from where I am seated, and the projector is directly above my head. With the 676 I am able to point forward toward my screen, issue a command, and the system responds perfectly.
With the 650, simple things like adjusting volume on the AVR or turning the projector off don't work. I have to directly aim the remote at the equipment.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
