IR Sensor on Pace XiD-P Contour (2) Box?
Like several folks on this forum (and with no clear answer), I have a need to utilize the IR sensor on the Pace XiD-P Contour (2, I believe) cable box. (This is one of the several "client" boxes I have in various rooms which is used in conjunction with the main/"Master" Cisco 9865HDC cable box.) I want to use an IR Blaster from a legacy product to control one of these boxes with an IR remote, while still being able to use the standard RF (XR11) remote while in the room, and I understand the XiD-P offers both the RF & IR interface capability. Normally, you can see any IR Sensor on a box (as can easily be seen on the front of the master Cisco 9865HDC box), but the XiD-P has a thick plastic outer strip blocking any view of the sensor. And although several online sites show the sensor location for this box either on the left or right front of the box, none seem to work, likely either because 1) the plastic strip is blocking, and/or 2) the IR sensor is not actually present. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to overcome this to use the IR sensor interface? Thanks in advance! Jim P. Irvine, CA
