However, the range of the remote left something to be desired. I was only able to control it from at most 4 feet away. I noticed that on the remote where I took the IR LED from, it was set about an inch apart. Do you think I can increase the range if I set them wider apart?

Glad to hear it's working Your IR transmitter looks very nice.

Yes, the IR range is short, that's why I use LEGO to make a holder for the transmitter ;-p

I tried smaller IR LEDs which consume less power (I guess, because I don't have the datasheet), so their range is longer than normal IR LEDs under same power condition.

have fun!
