Increase TV2 RF remote sensitivity on 722 STB?

Back in the stone age there was a documented procedure for increasing the STB's sensitivity for RF remotes.

Is there any similar method for the TV2 RF remote on the 722?

I'd like to avoid messing around in the equipment shelves to get at the back of the receiver in order to relocate the existing antenna or connect a better one.

When it comes to the UHF remotes there are only really three problems. 1) Power, your remote needs new batteries. 2) Distance, you have to either relocate the TV2 or the antenna closer. 3) Interference: Something is happening on the same frequency that is drowning out your remote commands. Change the remote address (menu, menu) to something else and see if the problem persists. If, after a few address changes the problem continues, then either there is interference in the whole spectrum the remote uses or the problem was 1 or 2.
