Hi! i'm running openElec XBMC distro, and i've a couple of fans and heat sink, to keep as low as possible temperature on RPi. Now I've only one of the fans running, it's conected directly to 5V and GND. Also i've conected the other fan to GND and GPIO 7.
What i'm wondering is how i can manage gpio in openElec? I've read that openElec block GPIO access, but also i've read that it's possible to add a remote controller through GPIO, so i don't know which one is right.
If there is any way, i'm going to create a little board to attach 5v of both fans to 5v on GPIO, and ground of fans to ground of GPIO and add a switch to be able to turn on/off the fans.
