    Morning just got my new edge, trying to locate the infrared sensor on it (can't seem to find the light or bulb even with a flashlight). I have to attach a remote sensor for my J-Tech IR extender on the Edge (edge is in closet, tv is in Den 25 feet away.) Thanks.

    I usually just continuously press the Pause Button while moving the Emitter around until I pin it down.

    They'v done Clever Things before like putting it in the TiVo Logo.

    Thanks - that is where it was on the Bolt - do you know where it is on the Tico Edge?

    It's simpler to hit the down button. I would get a something that blocks IR, like a black SD card, and move it across the box until the amber LED no longer responds. I found the Mini VOX sensor is just to the left of the power LED that way. I guess you know that the remote should have a red LED when testing.

    It appear th sensor keeps moving - we find it, tape up the IR sensor to the TIVO Edge, then it stops working. Then when we retry it doesn't work at all - very weird as it worked on the Bolt no issues.

    The entire Edge plastic case is not completely opaque. With an insanely bright light, the stuff inside is visible. On mine, there appears to be what looks a whole lot like a typical IR receiver-type element that is exactly one inch to the right of the TIVO logo on the front, on some standoffs that hold it a few millimeters above the motherboard.

    I would have thought that the Bluetooth connection would work without the need for an extender for that distance?
