    I want to use my learning remote that only has IR.

    Where do I find the Roamio Basic IR sensor?

    Thanks.

    On my Roamio Basic, the IR sensor is just a hair to your right of the Tivo logo - almost behind the logo. Here is a Youtube HD upgrade video that hapens to show the IR sensor close to dead center at the 2:54 mark.

    Here is a pic of my adhesive ir emitter.

    Its more about an inch to the left of the logo. Shine a flashlight and you should see an empty space behind the dark plastic.

    It's amazing the SO many chimed in and SO many don't know, or do and didn't mention the location.

    Yes, people, there IS a need to control the Tivo via IR.

    When doing a large system where ALL the equipment is in a central location (equipment rack in a rack room), there is a need to control via IR, IP, or RS232, with a universal remote, where that ONE remote controls the Tivo, BluRay, AM/FM tuner, and all sorts of other things.
