I just had a thought after writing this...would it be possible to make the "antenna" closer to the bedroom by running coaxial cable from the antenna point on the receiver box under the house and attaching the "antenna" connector on the opposite end closer to my bedroom? Thanks.
This is what I was going to recommend. You'll need a spare piece of coax and a barrel connector. Connect the coax to where the antenna would be on the back of the receiver, and connect the antenna on the end of that piece of cable. Run the cable off to the side a bit so the antenna is more exposed, and see if your remote is working better. If it's still having the same issues, you likely need a replacement remote.
