    What is the make and model of the IR Extender, and what do the instructions tell you to do?

    One issue with extenders though, is that you have to know where the IR sensor is on the target box, and aim for it pretty accurately.

    On a T2000, the trick is to shine a very bright torch on the fascia, which reveals it to be transparent, and you can see where the IR sensor is behind the fascia, about halfway along a line drawn from the On/Standby button to the centre ring.

    But I don’t know where it is on the T2200, though perhaps another helpful soul might.
