What is Flirc's range?

Although Flirc's range depends on the strength of the remote control you are using, it will work up to 20 feet away with most remotes. Like all infrared (IR) devices, Flirc works best when it's placed in the line of sight of the remote control.

Can I use my TV remote control with Flirc?
