I suppose the technical answer to my response is no, but using XBMC I found that my remote control could learn the signal from my wireless IR keyboard to control my media center. I know if you boil things down that's a usb IR receiver, but it's also rather guaranteed to work (unlike some random IR receiver/remote combo) since the Pi sees it as keyboard inputs.shanebarrett123 wrote:Has anyone worked out have to attach an IR receiver (not USB)?

Same path I'm heading down but with no DVD. I'm having some issues with layout though and was wondering if perhaps you could share a link to some photos of how you see it playing out. Want to make sure I'm seeing the right setup before I start making cuts. Would appreciate the help, thanks.chrisost wrote:I've taken a slightly different approach. I started with a 5.25" enclosure. I used a blank faceplate, and cut out openings for 5 USB ports, an IR receiver, and a slot load DVD drive.
Internally, I had 5V available from the existing poser supply, and added a USB hub and USB to SATA adapter. To connect HDMI and Ethernet, I picked up a couple of 6" extension cables to route the connection outside of the enclosure.
I'm still waiting to get my Pi to put in it, and I'm not sure how the DVD drive will work out without HW decoding. (I started the build before finding out that MPEG-2 would not be licensed.)
All said - enclosure, slot load drive, hub, 6*USB extension, 1*Ethernet extension, 1*HDMI extension, 1* RCA extension, 1*mini to RCA cable - I've spent around $50.
