Hope someone can give me a suggestion on this minor problem. I use a MX-500 remote with a B&K receiver. From my seating position of 12 feet from the receiver on the right side of the couch, my remote will not control the B&K which is to my left at maybe 45 degrees. unless I hold it about three feet to my left and in the wife's face. Oddly enough, my wife resists trading seats where the remote works just fine. The remote has no problem controlling the digital cable box, vcr or dvd player which are on the same rack. I have angled the receiver slightly in my direction but don't want to angle more for aesthetic reasons. Any suggestions to get control of the receiver?
