There is talk on the OrigenAE forums about an IR sending addon module for
the these IR/VFD units. Apparently they are waiting to solve some problems
with the Windows MCE IR API before they release the module (their main
market is MCE), something about Micro$oft not releasing the details to the
general public. So us Linux users will have to wait :-(

No, not yet. I have a dedicated FE/BE and it is nearly never off, so like
you I haven't spent much/any real time to get it going. Maybe when I get the
nvram auto shutdown/resume going it will be worth doing.

The linux client can set the power on / power off commands I think, but the
doco is much clearer on how to do it with the windows client.
