Just recently purchased Robosapien X for my son for Christmas and robot works perfectly fine with remote control. What led us to this purchase though is the fact that he can operate with my son's iPod as well. I've tried to operate the robot with the infrared dongle however it doesn't appear to work. Are the lights of the eyes on the dongle suppose to light up? I thought the batteries were bad and even changed. Still no luck. Am I missing something or is the infrared dongle bad and can it be replaced without replacing the whole robot as again it's fine.
