Video sender control.

we have used a 5ghz medium priced wireless video transmitter/receiver with very acceptable results to control  our tivo box from the bedroom and watch the signal  from the transmitter downstairs which is connected to the tivo. Over time changes to TV's and other hardware has resulted in minor relocation of the video t/r unit. 

To transmit the I/R signal to the tivo box there is a thin wire about a metre  long with 3 equally spaced magic eye (i/r) units which I try to position in the best place to activate the changes to the tivo from upstairs . 

What would help me is if someone could give a pretty accurate location of the I/R on the tivo so I can get the best signal.

Thank you.

Re: Video sender control.

Hold a torch close to the TiVo front panel at an angle of about 45 degrees. You will see a small gap in the reflection.
