I have a “recertified” WDTV Live that has poor reception on the IR Reveiver. I’ve tried suggestions on this board such as removing the plastic cover, shutting down fluorescent lights, programmed another remote,etc., all to no avail. The unit only responds when the remote is only 10 cm away from the device.
Does anyone know what the specs are of the IR Receiver? I’d like to replace it with a new one, as I believe it 's the culprit. It looks like a 3 legged TSOP4838, or something similar??? Has anyone actually swaped one out?
Thanks in advance.
