New here and very green (aka newbie) to the world of everything IR. You guys have taught me A LOT already and I'm hoping to learn more as I devour the information on this site.
Here's my problem: I am a high level quadriplegic and cannot us my arms (or hands). I use a Permobil C300 power wheelchair that possess an interval IR receiver and emitter/blaster (not sure which one).
I can program my TV (2 Samsungs) into the chair no problem, but I am having issues with things like my DishNetwork (Hopper), Amazon Fire TV, and HeatSurge (M7) remotes. Could this be because these remotes possess weaker signals even though I have each remote pointing and almost touching the receiver LED? Is there a way to improve or amplify the signal to be received by my wheelchair's receiver?
Any and all ideas are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
