2019 DSDP TV tuning help

Has anyone figured out how to solve the problem of tuning the TV without holding your arm up in the air to clear the tumble queen bed?
My arm gets tired.

At the factory pickup I mentioned that to the tech. He added a 3/4” plywood block under the base of the televator arm. This brought the top of the tv cover to the bottom of the cabinet above it. It helped quite a bit.

We had about an inch between top of televator and AV cabinet above. We set the televator to only 1/4 inch below. Can easily change channels now with elbows resting on armrests of recliners. Height can be set with switch.

How is the height adjusted with the switch?

One remote (Bose) should control all. iR repeater should pick up just pointing towards TV.

It will not control Dish 722vip and you have to hold it over your head to reach the IR on the TV.
