Wireless Keyboard/Mouse recommendation

I've tried 3 diff combo's and none seeme to have the range I'm lookin for. Basically I need to control my home theatre computer from the couch, maybe 15-20' range is all i'm needing and so far i've striked out.

Thx for any recommendations on a wireless k/m that has good range.

what type of display are you using?

i have the logitech MX duo, and i have had pretty good luck with it, but i would look into getting an extension for the reciever, to put it closer to your seating.

The keyboard says: Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.0A

But, The mouse says: Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0

It look's like this except my mouse isn't silver on top. I also was just messing with it to see how far away I could get and I couldn't get any further then about 34-35' befor it started working on and off. I bought this stuff as a package from Best Buy on sale for $69.99 at the time I believe and this was about 6 month's ago.

Pretty nice. I am using Logitech for mine with extension cords. I don't mind running the cords as I also need extented USB cable for remote and racing wheel. Run the cords through the wall and put a faceplate with PS2 connectors on it, that's the best way to do it.

112" front projection CRT. It is coming down tonight, moving to a new place. I am not sure if I will put this one up or downgrade to a LCD or DLP projector. Some of the DLP's are quite nice but they still can't produce decent black levels.
