HR21 -700 IR sensor location?

I just got the new HD DVR thru D*. Its the HR21. I have a IR blaster system where I stick the blaster on the front of the reciever to change channels, etc... I stuck it on the blank round circle next to the power light but the remote is 50/50 whether it works. All other components on same system work like a champ. Is the location of the IR sensor or is there somewhere else to stick my blaster? Thanks
