I am using the remote control extender that Brittmer is talking about. I use it for my pool area and have the receiver and cd player safely mounted in a garage storage room out of the weather and where there is easy access to electric.

It is as simply as it sounds....you use a replacement recharagable battery in your remote (limited to remotes that use AA and AAA batteries). I haven't tried to test the limits on the range, but I'd have used it sucessfully and regulary at a distance of 75'. My signal has to penetrate a brick wall to get to the receiver.

Below is the company that I purchased the unit from (as well as other items from time to time....so it has my recommendation), and this item is slightly cheaper than Smarthome.

Good luck,
