I was struggling with finding the proper IR repeater/transmitter mount point on the Pace XiD-P this weekend, until I found the images that show the box's IR receiver is on the LEFT front, NOT in the yellow box indicated in Comcast's post above. The IR receiver is located on the front of the unit, approximately inline with the right edge of the HDMI output port on the back of the unit (as you're facing the HDMI port).

Comcast: Please do something to correct this misinformation. It would have saved me an hour, at least. Thanks.
The yellow box specified for IR Repeaters on Post #1 does not work for the Pace PXD01ANI.
Since Comcast was unable to provide appropriate support for IR sensor location, I struggled (along with many other customers) using the "Trial & Error" method. After much aggravation, I found a few areas that would work. The top, left side of the box works, as does the face (or front), left side of the box; ironically, the location in Post #1 is an area that DOES NOT TRANSMIT A SIGNAL.
Does the Pace PXD01ANI have IR? Ican't find it on the box.
Yes, check post#1 for locations, the front is hard plastic, it'll be trial and error.
