Just upgraded from Comcast to FIOS. Unfortunately the Motorla DCT700 STB (set-top-box) does not have a remote IR receiver, so we are going to mod the STB to accept a hard-wire remote IR receiver.
Here is the original Comcast STB, notice the IR in
Here is the FIOS STB (Motorla DCT700)
The MOD is pretty easy we are just putting another IR receiver module in parallel with the original, here is the IR Receiver data sheet for the Motorla DCT700
Labeled V32238 aka TSOP32238
Here is the mod
Green wire = Ground = Shield
Blue wire = +VS = Tip
Orange = Data pin = Ring
Carrier Frequency 38 Khz
The "DTA DIGITAL TRANSPORTER ADAPTER IR EMMITER 3.55MM"
Or you can make your own cable at radio shack.
ALL DONE ENJOY!
There is a already small hole for the wires, I can just go in and remove everything when returning the STB.
