RC5 remote control extension
Over the years, infrared remote control units have become better designed and more reliable. They retain a few weak facilities, however, owing to the laws of nature. Their range is fairly limited and there needs to be a straight and clear line of sight between receiver and controller. These weaknesses may be obviated with the extension unit described in this article, which has been designed primarily for use with Type RC5 remote controllers.
