hiding ir receiver in air vent
just been tinkering with my player and ive got it installed but thinking about a few changes and one of which would block where i currently have the ir recevier for my irman. Just wondering if i could take a wire and extend the actual small receiver from the pcb board and hide it in the air vent. That also brings up my second question, would the heat/cool do any bit of damage to it? could it fog up the lens on the ir receiver? just thought id toss that out there. If no go then ill just figure some where else to mount, just an idea though.
Thanks in advance
