    Fix An Unresponsive Remote Control

    My children are rough on everything.They dropped my TiVo Remote; the protector lens cap fell off and disappeared. It still worked.Until they could not resist sticking their fingers inside and breaking off the exposed PURPLE LED's.I'm fairly good at soldering, and could solder replacements in.They sell IR LED's on eBay, but they identify the PURPLE ONES, as the TiVo Remote has, as RECEIVERS.To me that makes no sense.The CLEAR LED's on eBay are called EMITTERS.Would not the TiVo Remote be using EMITTERS ?If so, why are they PURPLE ?
