Where is IR receiver on SKy Q box

I am getting a SKQ box to replace my c 10 year old HD+ box next week. I currently distribute the signal to 8 TV's using HDMI, Component and RF (different locations, TV's and monitors lend themselves to different connections) and use IR over RF to feed back to the RF2 SKY box. I also distribute a Virgin Tivo in a similar way but use a Global TVLink Plus to drive an IR emitter attached to the Tivo box. I intend to do the same on the SKY Q using the second emitter and wondered if anyone knows where the receiver is on a SKY Q box.

As far as I'm aware there isn't one on any of the Sky Q boxes...

I don't know about the newer models but, on my v1 SkyQ Silver box, the IR receiver is half an inch to the left of the power button.

Sky Q remote is blutooth not IR , also , there is no RF2 out (no analog outputs at all ) , so your distribution system needs some big changes to work with Sky Q over that many TVs.

Thanks - FYI I got a 2TB Sky Q and a Mini installed today and they both work with IR and blutooth. I have an HDMI to Scart and Scart to RF Modulator running off the box and an extra emitter on the Global tvLink plus I use for my tivo so it was a straight swap
