Hmm, found something interesting, appearantly if I read this right it should be as simple as just getting an IR receiver or rip one out of an old device, say a VCR or something and simply plug it into the motherboard, supposedly that’s all the dongle really does, so if it’s really that simple, all I would need is the receiver and an old flash drive and I should be able to solder one up in no time, and maybe even for free http: My further suggestion was to show the easiest thing to do is to just not let the thing sleep but idle down power. Looking for a possibly discontinued CIR receiver. Your guy’s solution was a lucky guess. Your post was essentially, “can I buy or make one of these”.

I also have a stack of echo remotes that look exactly like the one you have in the link. A normal person would have responded, “no thanks, I prefer to build my own”.

My grandma isn’t very handy with a soldering iron. For the best viewing experience please update your browser to Asrokc Chrome. Originally Posted by mikedamirault. Best cheap alternative to Harmony.

Or are there any guides where I could possibly make one myself or mod something similar to make it work on the CIR header? That is essentially what I said in my one and only post on the thread topic. No need to respond. I could have given you guesses too. I responded that you don’t have to go to all that trouble if one can’t be bought. My further axrock was to show the easiest thing to do is to just not let the thing sleep but idle down power.
If one post recommend you try a USB dongle is enough to work you into a recdiver, then I feel sorry for you.

So the IR receiver itself would be the bottleneck, and that’s going to be physically identical to any internal receiver you get. And I would have responded, “best of luck to you”. Originally Posted by Onkyoman. Any of these should do just fine.
Sammy is recommending remotes because asrocl can’t often buy just the dongle without the remote. Last receifer Newegg had the RC on shell shocker I bought 3 of them and keep them as spares, mainly for the dongle as I use Harmony ‘s or Harmony One remotes to control my systems in various rooms.

This allows their to be no issues with WMC recordings not being picked up and allows to stream recordings over the internet via things like Emby and Plex without worrying about having it WoL either. Remove Advertisements Sponsored Links.
BTW, ajhiebmy suggestion for getting the echo remote was not correct in that there were no dongles but I figured the OP needed a remote too because usually these remotes are sold with the dongle, most commonly the USB dongle. I was done with this but really? If you absolutely cannot live without internal, this kit will definitely wake from S5: I looked at the specifications for the RC you posted and it asrick say anything about CIR compatibility.
Take it or leave it. What Fir and I are trying to say here is that you can get the same functionality without having to go through all that work.
CIR Receiver – how do I use it?
There will be absolutely no performance difference whatsoever. I realize internal IR is receuver for aesthetic reasons. I understood what you were talking about.
Just trying to offer simple solutions.
