Can a sensor bar be mounted behind the screen and still have the system pick it up. I am running a PAE 7000 with a 110" screen. I dont want it located at the bottom or top but "behind" the screen.

Regards

The bar is actually an IR light source. So imagine shining a weak LED flashlight through the screen which will probably block it entirely. IR follows the same rules a visible light except we can't see it with the naked eye. Any opaque material will block it.

I mounted my sensor bar below the screen. No issues.
