You've got main power coming to the bottom of both switches, then a red and black switch leg up to the ceiling. I'm guessing the receiver only has 1 power wire input to it, so which ever colour you used in the ceiling to the receiver is what you want to connect to the new switch

Red wire

Good. And then does the receiver have connections with the fan and the light?
