    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.

    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.
