Hi All. 2 of the leads on my IR blaster have fallen off their respective devices (TV VCR). They came with a pad that held on for about a year.

Can someone reccomend something to reattach these to my TV/VCR IR sendor? I don't want to mess up the signal, and it has to be strong the Sony TV does not give me much to attach to.

I was thinking contact cement maybe?

Thanks.

thin clear silicone

Comes with added bonus of being removable after the fact.

As opposed to the Polenta the wife once cooked, which needed an angle grinder.

Hot Glue is another option.

Are you saying that a sexy adhesive is another option, or that hot glue is a sexy adhesive? I think the screams accompanying a good hot gluing tend to make it less than sexy.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

I used hot glue once. It melted what I was trying to stick together. Not one of my better ideas.
