WDTV Remote iPhone App for WDTV Live HD - No power on/off option?

I have a new WDTV live and one of the old Live HD ones from a few years back which I am led to believe is now supported by the app.

My issue is that the remote layout for the new one includes power button to turn unit on/off over network but with the old unit the remote is limited without power button which I am in real need of as I want to place my old unit in the attic and distribute to all TVs with RF modulator (obv not in HD).

Why is this and can this be changed so that I can power on/off old generation WDTV Live HD over wifi.

It appears in windows network even when powered off and web settings can be accessed so surely a power on command can be sent over network connection.

WDTV Live HD Remote Layout - minimalistic and NO power button??..  :cry:
