Next time you reboot your 900 look at the "hardware revision number" on it. The later ones have really improved the use of the RF blaster and range issue. (I have three 900's in my house)
Unfortunately not. The wall unit is actually a wall length cabinet/furniture that is built into the wall. The cabinet portion where the A/V gear is is to the far left of the TV (which is mounted above the fireplace).
I have definitely noticed a big difference with the new 900. The first one (which I pretty much bought when it was first released), more and more the blaster signal was not going through, and about a week ago the 900 stopped working altogether (I would have to take out the battery, leave out overnight, put it back in, it would work for about 8 hours then same problem).
One thing I was glad, when I got the new 900, all I had to do is plug into my PC and all my presets from the old 900 were copied over so I didn't have to reprogram any of the codes I set up for the Dune
