I am trying to place an IR emitter on the face of the 101 H cable box because my cable box is in a cabinet. Can anyone tell me where the receiver is located on the face of the 101 H cable box?

    Hey Tracy,

    From Google Search:" The new boxes are a bit fussy but the ir receiver is about 13 of the width from the left side of the box almost dead center of the height of the box. Shine a flashlight on the front panel and you will see a round bubble."

    Did you get, or do you have a World Box remote? These provide IR responses without the need to be directly pointed at the box itself and the new World Boxes can be set up and configured as such.

    Older remotes will work with World Boxes (Boxes without clocks.) But they do have to pointed within a reasonable line of site from the CATV receiver.. The World Box remotes also seem to go through batteries faster.
