Look what happened to my IrMan!

    This has probably been done by others already, but I'm happy with it so I said I'd post a picture:D [​IMG]

    I took the IrMan apart & removed the IR receiver (sensor). Fitted this to the 5.25" drive bay blanking plate, fitted the PCB just behind & connected using short copper links.

    Couple of questions:

    Can I connect the IrMan directly to my motherboard? I have an Asus A7V266-E, which has an Infrared Module connector (10-1 IR Con).

    It would be preferable to using one of the rear panel serial ports.

    Anyone know where I could find more info on this - pin configs etc?

    Also, I'd like to get an IR keyboard. I use a Pronto for DVD/DScaler etc.. control duties, but I'd like to surf from my armchair when the movie is over!

    What would you recommend? & will this work with the IrMan & Girder?
    I've heard mention of an "airboard", but where would I source this & is it the best solution?

    I don't want to have a second IR receiver, just the IRman.

    Any help appreciated;)
