I was just installing Windows ME on my TV...and I was really looking at the parts on the inside of my websurfer for the first time. Over on the left side by the DOC soocket, the area where the power light hooks up has a bunch of un used headers. One says its for the hard drive light, another says infrared. Are these usefull for anything? Also is there any way to control the LED's on the front that don't do anything anymore?
RE:What are these headers for??? (modified 0 times)
The headers are for the HDD connected to the (non existent) IDE connector, and the IR is for an IRDA attachment (the websurfer does not have one). If you break the wires out of the connector, you can connect the LEDs elsewhere. I have one to my PCI IDE card for the HDD and plan to solder the other on to my network card's activity light as soon as I figure out how.
If you are running LINUX, there is a program that lets you control the pins by software. (3rd LED program)
The motherboard is an ST-1030, which you can look up information about on the web. There is a full board manual, may still be available at http://www.allwell.tv
