Driverless Wireless mouse (& keyboard) for a distance of 8m

Last Modified: 2015-12-12
I have a video player connected to the TV : alas  when short videos (of a few minutes)
finish, I often have to walk about 8m (from my dining table) to use the mouse (&
keyboard) to click to go to next video.

I've tried a few wireless mice : Logitech Darkfield Anywhere, an unbranded wireless
mouse & an Imation wireless mouse : all of them only works within 1m distance.

So far all the above mice don't require any driver : just plug their USB dongle to
the video player & it just works on-the-fly

Anyone know of any long-distance mice (& keyboard which I use less frequent
but still good to have)?

A 2-in-1 ie a USB dongle that controls both mouse+keyboard is fine too.
 eBay or Amazon online links that ship to Singapore will be appreciated
