Youview+ (2014 G4) IR Sensor Location

Go to solution

I have one of the new 2014 G4 (fanless) Youview+ boxes, (the ones that match the HomeHubs) which is hidden away so am trying to set up a Marmitek IR extender to work with it, but there is no visible sign of the IR sensor on the box. Anyidea where the sensor is located ??

Thanks, only problem is my IR Extender unit has to be stuck directly over the sensor, I've tried a few places roughly with what I can see in your picture but with no luck, is there anyway to get the cover off without having to take pliers to rip the thing apart ?

I can't suggest running it with the front removed.

 

If it helps, the IR measurements are 2.5cm from the right and 1cm from the top. The plastic in front is actually a very thin lens so should help focus, rather than impeed.

Surely you can just stick the IR extender somewhere in front of the box - you shouldn't have to place it directly over the IR sensor as it should emit enough signal if just placed on the shelf.
