Yes you can. I have the LC14M (same equipment, just a different fascia.) These 
cases come with an iMon VFD and IR remote. Check out Venky's site for all the 
info you need to get these to work under Linux.


One thing to be aware of with this remote/receiver combo is that it uses a 
different IR protocol compared to pretty much anything else out there. RG6 
vs. RG5 or something like that. If I recall it means that the remote and 
receiver communicate much quicker. So for example, you can't replace the 
remote with a whizz bang back-lit universal. As the iMon remote is not 
back-lit, I consider it a bit of a dud remote for a home theatre PC.
