I found the IR was on the far left hand side at front of box ( not RHS as suggested by someone else). This enables me to now control the box from another room using an IR receiver in the second room and the transmitter positioned about 2 Cm in from and at the far left side of the TIVO box. The reply suggestion didn't work as the IR on the box doesn't light up. Another suggestion I read elsewhere of skiing a torch at an angle on the from of the box didn't work either. It was found by trial and error just moving the transmitter across the from of the box until it worked.
