Hi, personally I don't like infra-red, too restricting in that it needs to all be connected *line-of-sight* ........ However, the only thing I can think of in your case is, are infra-red 'windows' all very clean? - if anyone smokes nearby it is possible that the infra-red lens' need cleaning.

Well, in computing anything is possible - you could try a System Restore back to when it was working properly.
