    Does anyone know where to place the IR eye for my universal remote on the new tivo roamino? The rep told me right side of the box, but i cant seem to find the right location. thanks

    Often you can see them by shining a bright light at the front, sometimes the ports show up with enough illumination (a powerful LED flashlight is usually perfect).

    I'm having trouble with this as well. No matter where I move the emitter, it doesn't seem to want to work. I know the IR works, because I can use an older TiVo remote to control it. I think I may have to jack up the strength of the emitter.

    On the basic Roamio, I placed mine near the center above the TiVo character logo and to the left side of the logo. Works great.

    Jacked up the IR strength, and it's working perfectly now. It's definitely very finicky about the placement, though. You have to have the emitter in the exact right spot.

    I have the plus and placed it over the yellow light. Perfect.

    I would think it would be the same as the plus (see my list above)

    I just connected my pro, didn't work near the yellow light, but it worked just under the tivo logo in the middle.

    Couldn't see any sensor with the flashlight.

    I know, I need some more velcro tape. :) I must have some around here somewhere.

    The IR receiver on the Roamio Plus is just to the left of the TiVo logo, facing the box.

    It's also very low on the box to the left of the TiVo logo. I had one open last night.

    How are you configuring the box to use an ir emitter? It's only seems to want to configure kinect. I'm not using kinect right now but I want to set up the emitter to my TiVo. Thanks.
