Just recieved mine today from Amazon.com
The IR keyboard is not emulated as a keyboard. I was unable to use it while booted into DOS. Everything I was able to glean had to be done via autoexec.bat. There is a four pin connector on the MOBO. Could this be for a keyboard?
DOS 6.2 MSD reports the following:
BIOS: PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0p (dated 12/17/99)
Memory: with himem.sys loaded, it is only showing 6976k of XMS which would lead me to believe the machine only has 8 MB of RAM. Interesting, though is that it reports 65535k (i.e. 64MB) of extended memory.
Hard disk is 5.1 gig.
Processor is reported as 486DX. Not sure where the NS processors in these machines fall. Perhaps MSD is too old to properly report the newer chips.
3 com ports are reported. I'm guessing that one of these is the IR controller.
Video is Cyberpro 5005. Drivers are supposedly included with win98. Otherwise, they can be downloaded from www.gctglobal.com. Haven't tried them, though.
Not much of the disk is being used. Was able to compress the contents down to < 14 MB with gzip -9.
If you hose up your disk, the BIOS will detect and dialout and refresh your disk. Takes awhile though.
If you boot the machine up, you can configure for your own ISP it appears. Press Ctrl-Alt-Mute to get into setup (this is not the BIOS). Advanced setup can be gotten into using the password nixel. This information was gleaned from NT-150 discussion board and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/stbhackers. It works here as well.
If anyone has a better (read: more up-to-date) DOS based tool for reporting hardware config info, let me know and I'll try it out.
