Harmony 1000 Line of Sight Question

Hi there. I have a TV at one end of the room, a projector on the ceiling at the other end and a kit rack alone the side of the room.

How can I use a Harmony 1000? Does it require line of sight to all my kit? If it does, I'm stuffed.

Oh right cheers. Does anyone know if that's a fluke or is it actually made to work like that?!

My projector behind me responds to IR remote commands directed towards the screen - I suppose they just reflect back.

It does require line of sight. It will work at reasonable angles but anything too acute and you'll need to angle the remote toward the equipment.

Like hhatkin I found that the signal can reflect off the TV in front of you and control equipment behind you - so long as you're not blocking the path.

Logitech do an RF extender though that might help you for any non-line of sight equipment http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/remotes/universal_remotes/devices/378&cl=gb,en
