Hopefully you guys can help.

I've got my home PC set up in our entertainment system, hooked to our flat screen. I've got a wireless keyboard and mouse that used to serve us just fine when our living room was small in our old apartment and the range was about 8 feet or so from couch/chair to PC.

Now that we've moved into a house that range has increased to about 15-18 feet or so between the PC and the couch/chair.

I went out and bought a pretty top of the line wireless keyboard and mouse to try to solve the issue, but it still doesn't have enough range.

Any suggestions?

How does the keyboard/mouse connect to the PC - is there a separate receiver? If so, what about moving the receiver closer to the sitting area? (USB or similar extension cable).

I have a Logitech DiNovo Mini.
It works pretty well for HTPC uses.

Most bluetooth keyboards should give you up to 32 feet or so.
