  • anyone using FIR port on EPIA M board?

    Is anyone here using the FIR infrared port on their EPIA or EPIA M motherboard? if so what did you buy and connect to it? I have a Irman but I dont want to use it if i have to because I want to free up the seriel port for something else. Id rather use the default IR port for the PC anyway, makes sense.

    Does anyone have a piccy of a home made remote reciever that would work with a FIR port?
    I have a home made standard ir reciever that works with most standard IR ports on older motherboards, but the FIR port has an extra pin. Doesnt work with it.

    cheers.

            it LOOKS like a FIR circiut but I cant tell where the Rx2 goes. and there is a open ended mode wire there...maybe they match up. thanks for that anyway!

              I've emailed the guys at VIA and they sent me a contact for a third party FIR module for the EPIA 800. I've emailed this contact and should hear form them soon. I'll keep you posed.

                      I couldnt seem to find a place to buy that module on their page. Can someone direct me to a page where I can buy the one that would work for the EPIA M1000? Also, will this interface withe the other software people are using with IRMAN to control winamp and everything?

                      Thanks
