Closet in Guest bedroom... Middle of a 1200 sq' house so it does the job well. Easy to wire as there is crawl space below and attic above.
This is kind of funny as I was "discussing" a similar "family" issue with my sister two nights ago.
Her. "Next time you're over, can you fix my TV's? The remote controls don't work"
Me "Did you have the cable company send you new remotes like you said you were going to do last time you asked me about this issue?"
Her "I don't need new remote controls, We have the TV ones, I just take the one from the living room to the bedroom when I go to sleep."
Me "So you have one samsung remote control that you take with you from room to room and you can't figure out why you can't change channels on your cable box?"
Me " So last time you asked me to fix this for you, you could not find any cable box remote controls, and you only had one samsung remote that you were using to try to control an LG TV. I told you you had to call the cable company and ask them to send you replacement remote controls. Did you get the new remote controls from the cable company like I asked?"
Her "You have remote controls, just bring them and fix it"
Me "Like I told you last time, I do not have the cable company remote controls. I can get you universal controls at cost and I'll program them for free... but that still will cost you a few hundred $. It would be allot easier if you just asked the cable company to send you remotes and I'll set them up for you.
Her "why don't you just get the cable company remote controls for me.. I'll pay you"
Me "OK, I'll need your cable co account number and pass code... Easier yet, just get me a copy of your bill and I can take care of it for you.
Her "Why is this so complicated, why can't I just use the TV remote controls"
Me " You lost your tv remote controls, and you can't control your cable box with your tv remote anyway... It's like you trying to use the key to your toyota to start your honda because you lost the key to your chevy"
Her "You're always such an a...ho... about this stuff.
Me "I can't help you. Call the cable co."
