The IR signals from the dock are apparently sent out in a small angle from the remote. I programmed some IR commands for my TV into the remote. They don’t work at all when the dock is sitting on the table next to my couch unless I pick it up and raise it into the air about 6 inches above the table. That height brings the dock almost the same height as the bottom of my TV, which is probably where the sensor is located on the TV. I duplicate this every time…raised, works, lowered doesn’t. Seems like bad design, bad components or both.
I wonder, is there any way this can be fixed besides having to buy an updated dock in the future? I don’t think software can help this, right?
It’s unfunctional unless I set it up on a coffee can or something, which obviously looks bad and is unpractical.
