    Building my carputer into an old DirecTv Case.. Buttons?

    Ok, I am building my carputer into an old Sony DirecTv case, and on the front of the case, there are 7 buttons..

    [power]======[guide]+[select] (+ = up, down, left, right)

    They go to a small circuit board, and then out on a ribbon cable.. Any ideas on what I could use these for? I would hate to have them go to waste..

    On a side note, (well I guess not really) can you have a power switch with an opus 150? Because the Opus controls the switching on the mobo.. How could I wire a switch to do the same thing (Opus would still have the ability to turn on mobo with acc switch)
