hmmthat's made me thinkI didn't check if the lenses are IR transparent
they should be here in the next day or so, a quick check will reveal allyou're right about the red LED though - a small hole and some glue will probably be fine
I'm not too worried about blocking visible light as the prototype works a treat "out on the desktop"thanks!

If it's a phototransistor, depending on its construction you might be able to do the whole drill-n-fill routine on it, too!
tried all my cameras - all have IR filters fitted - dammit!
