Check out this manual maybe it can help you figure out what's wrong with the design.

Planet-X,

Good eye! We did change the design slightly in late 2016. The PCB used to be two sided so that there was something to look at though the clear plastic, but we optimized the chip to be one sided and it no longer was as cool to look at though the window. The bright side is that the lenses and LEDs in your model are slightly updated, and there is better heat dissipation. You have the latest release 8-)

Is there a qualitative difference between the TIR 4 and 5 receiver?
