Hey Kipay I just did this to my poor comcast STB remote. It worked like a dream, now I dont have to be directly in front of it, and the distance is greatly improved. Thanks!

Still works! Dish Network remote - always had to hold it in several different positions to get it to function as the receiver has two walls in between as well as being faced away, at a right angle, from where I would point iti. It now works much better... not as if I was in the same room, mind you, but much better than before I followed your vid!
Thanks very, very much!

It worked for me :)
