Where is IR Sensor on TiVo XL4 - for use with Remote Control Extender (Emitter)

Last Modified: 2015-03-15
I am trying to use an IR Emitter as part of a Remote Control System to control a TiVo XL4.
When I take a flashlight, I see something that looks like an IR Sensor to the left of the TiVo logo on the front of the unit.
However, I get no response when I send a signal through an emitter that I've tested with another device.

I am trying to eliminate obvious causes before I look at my codes.

Have I found the correct location for the IR Sensor on this device?
