Recently installed an HR44-200 in a home theater system. Equipment in a remote closet. Harmony I/R univeral remote. Plasma-safe I/R receiver on television end. ALL EQUIPMENT respsonds perfectly thru I/R repeater system except Genie. Very intermittent operation. Went back and forth between Bufalo and Speakercraft I/R systems, changed emitters and blasters, changed location and distance of emitters and blasters, put blue tape over Genie's I/R receiver, no change in performace. Harmony remote aimed directly at Genie works fine no problem - it seems like the HR44-200 has issues with working on an I/R repeater system (like some PACE manufactured cable boxes, but using Pace's own extender and taping the front panel bypasses this issue)... the Genie does not allow for an I/R extender. I cant possibly be the only person who has been in this siuation? the people at Perfect-10 suggest using a directv remote in RF (HAHA! not! we are using a $300 remote that works in EVERY other installation) and my Directv people don't know what I am talking about. I am an LSP and have been in this business since 1987 so I think I have tried just about everything, but I am open to suggestions!
