    I have the Kameleon remote and have set it up for X10 using the code from the manual. I am using the IR7243 controller to operate just a light at the moment.
    The problem is I can only use the remote when it is about a foot away from the controller and directly in line with it.
    Does anyone else use this setup or know why I have such a limited range and angle?
    I have phoned simplyautomate who think it is a problem with the remote as they have heard of the same problem with the Kameleon remote.
    Anyone help??

    Is the IR7243 near sunlight ?

    I seem to remember they're quite sensitive to it.

    Of course if it's dark and you get the same problem then ignore the above :D
