Question about Boston Acoustics Audio Players & Recorders
Get yourself a very thin and small screwdriver. The type that comes in the eyeglass repair kits. Remove the cloth/plastic grill from the front of the sound bar. Locate the IR sensor in the center of the bar. Pry the dark red filter off the IR sensor and leave it off.
Problem solved, greatly increases range. I have read that there is a clear replacement cover you can buy but whats the point?

Assuming you are using digital BA735.
Dell laptops come with a proprietery s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers.
I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the incoming messages in Pidgin.
I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.
To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced > Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if you want the analog output as well. That's all.
I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful. My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.

I contacted Boston acoustics. I was told this is an intermittent problem with some units (mine is date april 2007). They say the radio will recover if kept unplug for 5 days. This is the time it takes for a huge capacitor on the main PC to discharge completely. They say a firmware upgrade can solve the problem.
So the idea is to leave it unplu for 5 days, plug it back and it should turn on again. I'm at day 3 and hpoing for the best.

You can contact the BA. As they will make arrangement to take it back and replace it. BA is a good company and they give consumer feedback as soon as possible. Well, only if you haven't got an answer to your question.
