I recently bought a Hotlink Pro IR repeater, which I thought would help me overcome this issue. Had previously a Logitech IR blaster, which was junk. But with the Hotlink, even though I can hide the eye, i still need to point the remote inthe general direction of the eye. IR remotes that I used 20 years ago on my TV's could be pointed at the ceiling or around the room and still control the tv.
Anyone else have this issue, and have found a solution? Any better remotes out there with more powerful IR strength that can work off-angle?
I don't know if it's just your remote, but I don't have that problem. I am able to direct the IR signal off of my ceiling,side walls and my rear wall. The only issue I have is when I direct it at my devices on an extreme angle. I actually have to bounce off of a wall instead.
