Just installed the universal garage door opener that's mounted overhead, near the sunroof switch, and the range is horrible. This is even after doing the home-made range extender with aluminum foil. I can't be more than 25' away from the receiver, and my old hand held remote is still operational to nearly double that. Is this typical, or is something wrong? Thanks.

My [dealer-installed] UGDO has at least 3x the range of the old remotes that came with my LiftMaster opener. So there may be something wrong with yours.
