which remote control for the antec fusion v2?

Filed under: Main, shopping — Tags: , , , — niko86 @ 17:17

the frontend is ready to serve its purpose, but i am missing a working remote.
i tried an x10 remote which obviously did not work because it sends RF and the imon Receiver is only capable of receiving IR signals…
i also tried different remotes shipped with the hauppauge pvr cards and another cheap universal remote.
i read that every windows media center remote should work, however i do not want to buy stuff if i am not sure, so i wrote to antec support.
i will post the answer.

antec fusion v2 volume knob and lirc

Filed under: configuration — Tags: , , , , , , , — niko86 @ 20:20

different subject same story, there are no exact instructions on how to make the volume knob work with lirc, so i will do a quick howto on that too.

for me there was nothing special about getting the knob to work.
i just installed lirc as described in the post below, after that i played around with irrecord and that’s it.
(fyi: irrecord creates a [remote] section for the lirc config)
if you want to do this yourself use this command:
#irrecord -d=/dev/lirc
follow the instructions.

antec fusion v2 imon vfd + lirc/LCDd howto

Filed under: configuration — Tags: , , , , , , — niko86 @ 20:20

since there are no exact instructions on how to get the vfd to work with LCDd/lirc i will write a quick HowTo.

if you know the thread on about how to get it to work it might be helpful, but the instructions there are not all you need to know.

first you need lirc and LCDd.
use these vars in your make.conf:
LIRC_DEVICES="imon imon_knob imon_lcd imon_pad"

add this line to your /etc/portage/package.use file
app-misc/lcdproc lirc usb

now just emerge lirc and lcdproc.
