Bose Wave Music System IR Receiver -- Replacement Part?

My Wave Music System stopped responding to the remote a while back, and I just tried replacing the IR receiver with the TSOP4838 recommended in another thread. Unfortunately, the TSOP4838 has three legs, and my PCB is designed to take a four leg receiver. There must have been a change to the board during the production run. Has anyone replaced their IR receiver in a Wave system with the four leg PCB?

Ok, how about a schematic?

I have the exact same issue, the ir receiver just stopped responding.  If I pop in a cd it autoplays just fine so I know the radio is working.  I did find a 4 prong ir receiver and just ordered it so hopefully that will fix it.

Bose do you sell these parts or even the whole display board since it's connected with a ribbon connector?

I think it's this one if you want to give it a shot:
