Location of IR receiver on Roamio Plus/Pro?

Does anyone know where the IR receiver window is on the new Roamio Plus or Pro? I can't locate it.

I use an IR network extender as the TiVo is located in a cabinet that does not have direct line of sight with the IR remote.

The new remote of course works great but I'd like to be able to use my Harmony One also.

Could you specify where it is in relation to the TiVo logo on the box?

Thanks.

Thanks. I have a small adhesive blaster and it needs to be pretty precisely located to work. I will give this a shot.

This seems to be working. Thank you.

The Tivo logo is on the black portion of the front panel which seems to be opaque.
Is the IR sensor behind the silver part or behind the black part?

Did it work? I have a basic and an ir blaster and have tried every inch of the front panel and have yet to find the sweet spot. Luckily, I might not need it as the normal IR from the remote to the receiver seems much stronger than the Premier or TivoHd. I do not have direct line of sight to the Roamio but like I said, doesn't seem to matter. I am not on RF by the way; I have yet to get that to work consistently.

It's about 1/2" to the left of the TiVo logo, just below the midline.
