Remote control distance


Active Member
Hello all

i have a hdbaset matrix setup sending video around the house and can control sources via IR

At each end point I have a cheap oneforall universal remote that can control the source (2 sky boxes , fire tv , apple tv ) and the matrix

The Remote works fine for the source (up 10 ft ish) but for the matrix I need to get much closer (within 3 or 4 foot of the IR )this is frustrating as when In bed I can’t controll the matrix without moving. I have tried a few different universals.

what is likely to be the reason (is it the matrix or the remote) and is there any remedy like a much more powerful remote control
