I have a Next Generations Remote control extender
and I was hoping someone could explain to me where exactly I need to place the IR emitter relative to the IR window/eye on my device. The emitter has a flat side with adhesive and a domed side. How is the signal transmitted? 180 degrees in all directions from the flat side? I'm having trouble with getting the device remote to work and the extended remote to both function equally and I have to think that my location of the IR emitter is the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

on some devices you can see the IR eye when you shine a flashlight at the front face of the device. they are usually behind the shiny black plastic under a tinted section

Check your manual, most manuals I've read show the location of the IR reciever. That should help placement. When I put mine in, I assumed the signal was just comming out of the end of the IR led and that worked well for me.
