|Does anyone have any idea what part was originally designed to go in the front panel? Mapping out the wiring, it appears that it supports a standard module, except for the fact that the wires are in the wrong order. Otherwise, it appears to provide +5 Vcc, GND, and a serial line. |
Also, is there a standard way to access the IRdA port, or is this going to fall under the category of ongoing mystery, like the card reader?
Also, I may try to see if I can simply run an IR LED up there, and actually mount the rest of the IR logic elsewhere. This would also free up a +5 to light up the power light. At the moment, I have rerouted the GREEN LED line to the power lamp - which actually works quite well. The YELLOW lamp still comes on when the system is sleeping - making the LED's work kind of like they do on a stereo component.
