Hi,

Another request for help. Ive got a brand new WDTL Live and fresh batteries in the new remote control.
Problem is that it only works if the control is 1-2 feet away from the unit. Otherwise nothing at all!

All my other hardware (tv, receiver, wii, apple tv, etc. work absolutely fine - even from odd angles).

Is there anything/tweak that I need to know about using the remote?

Thanks.

Ok. I fixed this. my problem was nothing like the other remote control issues with IR interference.
In fact the opposite.

Perhaps WD got a bit overzealous in filtering out IR.

I got desparate and opened up the cover and to my surprise everything just worked. perfectly. from meters and meters away.

Since filing didnt work, I popped out the black cover plate and drilled 3 tiny and discrete holes in it.

Popped it back in, closed it all up.. works great for me!
