Default 'Next Generation' RF Transmitter/Remote repeater

Howdy all, I just signed up here and am curious if anyone is familiar with the "Next Generation" (brand) RF Transmitter/remote repeater (can't post the link, but if you search Amazon for "next generation RF" it's the little UFO-looking thing)?

Quick rundown, if you're not familiar, You replace one battery in any remote with a little transmitter that sends your commands via RF to this unit, and the unit converts them back into IR and beams them at your components either via the ufo-shaped base (360 blast), or tiny "eye" transmitters that you can tape to the IR receiving area on your components.

I picked it up last year on Amazon and was quite happy with it, because I have all of my bedroom electronics hidden in my dresser to keep it looking clean. It was somewhat finnicky, but I eventually found the sweet spot and was very pleased. Fast forward a few months, I moved to another apartment and the cable guy took my antique Scientific Atlantic box and gave me a new, much smaller (and faster) box (this is Comcast). Problem is, I cant really get it to work with the infrared "eyes" of the repeater and I end up having to prop my cable box up to line-of-sight with the drawer open and use the IR remote.

Just curious if anyone has any ideas or experience.

Oh, and hi =)
