Simple question - on an SB3, where is the IR port? I need to attach an emitter to one. Thanks!

It is the headphone jack.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant where is the IR receiver on the SB3 located? Thanks.

You'll be able to see it if you shine a bright light at the display.

I managed to capture where it is by taking some photos for a rewview I wrote. See attachment and note the receiver's position relative to the Slim Devices logo. The receiver is the small circular part.

Aha, that explains why the headphones I had laying in front of my SB3
were blocking the IR signal. I was expecting the receiver to be on the
right side of the display like in the SliMP3/SB1 & SB2...

Thanks for the reply, and the picture! My attempts at shining a light on it revealed the connections on either end of the display, but I missed the IR down low. Thanks again!

I got that thing quite by accident, only noticing it after seeing the picture. :-)

I was actually trying to get the logo, but ended up overexposing it. Just right for seeing that little receiver though, which seems to be smaller than the one used in the SB2.
