It comes with an IRtrans VFD, which is supported in Linux. IRtrans has

Hi Ian,

I have the same case and find the irtrans IR receiver to be excellent, it
will learn just about all remote codes! For those interested the IR receiver
will also allow the PC to be turned on/off by the remote, it has an on board
relay that you can run your case power switch through.

So you have Marcus' (Irtrans) port of LCDproc working with MythTV for the
irtrans vfd? I thought Marcus' port was based on version 0.4.3 of LCDproc
and MythTV required version 0.4.5 or greater. I will look further into it,
but this seems like some good news as I have just got "Welcome to MythTV" as
the welcome/default message and haven't tried to get LCDproc going yet. It
has been like this for nearly 12 months now :)

379 Euro seems awfully dear, this case is AU$399 is Australia!



PS: I am not a programmer, but was considering attempting to port the
irtrans driver from Marcus' code to 0.5.0 ( there is a new driver API in
0.5.0), and see if we can get it included in LCDproc tree.
