    Does anyone know where the IR receiver is on the Directv DVR R10? I've done the flashlight thing and can't see one anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

    For what reason do you need to know where the IR sensor is on the R10 DVR? Are you planning to use an IR extender for control in another room? I would just experiment with different locations until it works.

    Well, kind of. I'm actually using a previously retired DVR to hook up to a Windows Media Center computer. The computer came with a remote that has an IR attachment that is used to control the DVR (or cable box).

    Bingo!! I tried this location initially (as it seemed to be the only possible choice) but had no luck. I went through the setup again and it now works. Thanks.

    As an aside, the DirecTv rep that I talked to could not find the info for me. Thats when I found this forum and posted the query.

    Thanks.
