Unless I'm remembering incorrectly, it's been a few years since I've seen
one up and running, you have to have the keyboard and the computer pretty
much lined up. The IR on the PC JR didn't work that great.

Now this on the other hand could be a problem, although I doubt anyone
considered having multiple units in the room when designing them. Perhaps
they have the ability to select IR "channels"?
