I will try offsetting the IR emitter next to reduce the signal level getting to the Moxi's "eye".
I just tried "mapping" the IR emitter with the assistance of my wife. I had her operate the MX-850 remotes channel up/down buttons (programmed from the hex codes posted here).
I was at the equipment rack in the basement trying locations for the IR emitter on the front of the Moxi. We were communicating via the intercom function on cordless phone units, so I could instantly learn the results of moving the emitter around.
I tried multiple locations on the front of the plexiglass cover on the Moxi. I even tried positions on the top and bottom of the plexiglass cover in an attempt to get it to work
The bottom line is that with the MX-850's very strong IR signals, the up/down buttons either jump two at a time or don't work when the emitter gets far enough away from the "eye".
I guess there is no solution for this issue, unless some kind of tint film placed between the plexiglass and the IR emitter would reduce the power of the IR signals?
