Our family has a DishDVR. It's changed the way we watch TV, but there was
some pain. Remote control #2 communicates with the base unit via UHF
, but from our back bedroom it worked very poorly. If you've got a DishDVR, you may be familiar with these problems.
We frequently tried to find that "magic place" to aim the remote so it would work -- be it at the corner of the dresser mirror, at the headboard, at the window and so on. Making the remote work was like voodoo, and all the newest batteries didn't seem to help.
Then I found a way to get much better reception between the remote control and the DishDVR receiver. Hurray!
