I just bought the official apple docking station - the one with a remote included. Do you guys also have a hard time for the remote/dock to register when you hit a button? I sit a few feet away in my chair and I have to stretch my arm and aim at the dock before it'll receive signal from my remote. Other times I sit on my bed which is right in front of the dock, also a few feet away, and sometimes it doesn't even register when I use the remote from there. Im wondering if it's the remote or the docking station itself. Can it be because the dock stands next to my mac mini, stereo, tv, dvd player and satellite dish receiver that it has a hard time catching the sigal? Cause its very weak. the remote works better on my new mac mini than on the dock. I got the docking station from ebay and the box had been opened so i dunno if its damaged or if the remote signal is always this weak (or the dock is weak at picking up the signal, i dunno). So I would appreciate some feedback for those of you who have the same docking station and the remote. If it works very well for you guys Im gonna have to contact the ebay seller.
