I'm wondering if I have an incorrect setup with my Harmony 900. My Xbox360 has the wireless adapter built into it. The xbox controller is wireless and works great, I don't have to make sure I'm pointing the controler at the xbox for it to work. However, my harmony 900 remote isn't so forgiving. The xbox to the remove needs line of site perfectly, even though they are in the same room and the xbox is not hidding behind anything. I have to point my remote at the xbox just like any other line of site remote.
I thought the remote would be able to use the same wireless config as the xbox controller so I don't need to have a blaster setup around it, or have to have to remote pointing precisely at the xbox.
Has anyone else experienced this issue, if so how do you resolve it?

The Harmony 900's RF functions are only designed to work with the blaster system it came with. It will not control other RF devices directly. In this case it's controlling the 360 via IR, which does need line-of-sight. Hope this helps.
