Ok Skylined, I might be dense (probably am), but I can't quite follow your instructions....

12v --- cable 1 ----- resistor --- led ---- cable 2 -----

this will make the led light up when I touch what?

Fher - Is there any other sites that explain how to attach it to your motherboard a bit more simply?  Probably making myself sound like a complete doofus, but the last time I played with jumpers on my motherboard I almost fried it, so a little gunshy.  I already checked and saw that my motherboard does have IR connection on the motherboard, and I already have the cd-rom digital audio cable, but mine is one solid black piece on the end, not where I can just plug in certain ends to particular places on the motherboard.  *hope that made sense*  Any help at all would be waaay appreciated.  I've been turning my PC into a semi-HTPC and this would be great.  *especially if I only have to spend a few bucks to do it :)*

EDIT - I posted a bit too soon about not knowing where to connect it and all, I figured out the right pins to connect it to, but I'm still stumped as to how to use my digital audio cable from my cdrom to connect the IR reciever to the pins.  All three wires are connected to the one black piece that usually inserts into the back of hte cdrom.  Is there any particular way to seperate the wires or something?  I'd hate to break my cable as I only have the one.

printer port
« Reply #46 on: May 10, 2004, 07:15:03 PM »

has anyone tried using a printer cable. If so could you show me how to set it up. by printer cable I mean the one with 25 pins. I dont have a 9pin serial cable. I also have a 15 pin port (Is that a serial cable too?).

And should the resistor be 1/4 watt or 1/2 watt?

Thanks for any help.

15 pin port
« Reply #47 on: May 11, 2004, 07:20:56 PM »

for a 15 pin port would I use the same wire pattern on the pins (e.g. 1, 5, and 7 pins)?

Please someone answer.

Test the cables with a multitester in "continuity" mode or do what's on the pic at the upper part of page 3, of this thread

NICE guide.

got my parts.....got the receiver pretty much built but i came across a problem....

the remote i fell in love with is an RF, not IR.

it's an Nvidia (nvRemote model UR88A) and my friend that i got it from didn't want it and threw the usb receiver away...
any ideas? other than "get a new remote"....?
