    In my new theater the equipment is at the back of the room, so I bought a Radio Shack IR repeater that I placed the transmitter up off the to the side of the screen and the receiver back across the other side of the room from the equipment. It works but not great! The Radio shack repeater must have a narrow IR receiving window that I almost need a Laser guided remote to hit the Transmitter pyramid.

    Are there any better brands that I can buy out there? I paid $50. for this set up and I am not too happy with it!

    Wes,
    Consider a Niles system that consists of a front-of-room receiver wired to a distribution amp at the rear of your room that then sends individually wired "flashers" to your individual components. Some cash and time to setup, but it NEVER ...I mean NEVER!! fails. Take a look at www.smarthome.com or www.onecall.com for parts & prices. I got mine at OneCall.
    Cheers!
