I just bought a $350 HP s7400n slimline pc. It's really quiet so
we'll be sticking it in the living room as a dedicated
frontend. This was the easiest FC5 install I've ever done.
I only have two items left:
1) Getting a low profile video card to take the place of the modem
and handle tv out. I've got one of these on order.
2) Figuring out how to make a remote control work. Here is where I need help.
The one thing that is missing from this machine is a serial port, or
I would get the Ira-3 from home-electro.com. That leaves me needing
using USB. I don't really want to spend the money for a Tira (which
has a USB interface) as it's overkill -- I just need something to
receive signals from my remote.
Has anyone else gotten a USB IR Receiver to work with lirc?
Foolproof systems don't take into account the ingenuity of fools.
