Default Media Players

Not exactly HTPC but hopefully someone can give me a pointer on this.

I've been playing with a WD TV Live, works great for what I needed except that I'm only allowed to place it in a cupboard where it's out of sight.

Anyone knows of a media player like the WD TV Live that has a wireless remote and doesn't need line of sight?

Thanks.

i doubt you'll find one with a uhf remote so you'll need line of site or maybe a remote extender.
Wireless Infrared IR Remote Extender - Up to 115 ft - StarTech.com
i havnt bought one from or recommend that store, just putting up a link so you have an idea what i was talking about. i think you can find them at the source or futureshop.

Thanks, looks like they'll work. I've used StarTech HDD caddies and racks and they are OK, will give the extender a try.
