I had my PVR updated to a Cisco IPV6015 from the Cisco 430 box due to Optik freezing the video and Telus remotely detected communication errors within the PVR. There were no errors detected in my 25 Mb/sec internet so the PVR was identified as the culprit. So I had a new PVR updated about 12 days ago but I noticed the remote control only had about 20 per cent of the range it had with the Cisco CIS430 box. My setptop Wifi box remote in basement is still excellent (over 60 feet pointed in any direction) since nothing was changed. The IPV6015 had to be within 20 feet and the remote had to be aimed at the PVR directly within a 15 degree margin. I complained and a Telus tech replaced the IPV6015 and there was very little improvement today. I am thinking this PVR is not totally compatible with this Telus remote as even the CIS430 was perfect range and I could turn the remote 180 degrees and IR still worked bouncing off the walls to the PVR. Is this a common complaint here? One thing to remember is that this IPV6015 was released in 2002 and was discontinued (Cisco says " End of Life") in 2005! I do not mind older PVR's if they work properly but this is a serious problem in my mind. I am retired electrical engineer that used to be a digital designer in computer interfacing/communications until I switched to computer based control systems later in my career in Vancouver, BC. Telus does seem to be very responsive and helpful so I would like to stick with them as I have had Optik for 8 years now. Does anyone have an IPV6015 that has good remote range or is an IR repeater required?
