Inteset Internal IR Receiver for Kodi and other Media Applications on any Motherboard running Windows or Linux. Wakes from the “OFF” State(S5). Model PC-IRS5-01 with External IR Extender Kit

In a world destined for A/V control via wireless technologies, there is still room for some good old IR control ingenuity. Our Wake-from-Off, IR Receiver, allows home theater PC (HTPC) owners to easily turn on their system from a complete OFF state using a standard infrared remote control. Windows, Kodi and Linux HTPC owners can enjoy a true consumer electronics experience. Until now, wake from off (S5) was achievable only using special motherboards. The PC-IRS5-01 gives nearly all consumer motherboards this capability with no special BIOS settings to configure or third party drivers to install. The IR receiver works directly with native eHome and Linux LIRC drivers to provide full control of home theater applications such as Media Center, Kodi (XBMC) and MediaPortal using an RC6 IR remote. For those with systems placed in hard-to-reach areas, an IR receiver extender kit is included.

The PC-IRS5-01 functions based on a simple concept that works with nearly all consumer motherboards. Most consumer motherboards are equipped with a “power header.” This power header allows both an on/off switch and a power status LED to be attached to it. The IRS5 uses a simple “Y cable” that inter-connects between the power header and the on/off switch and LED. This cable allows the IRS5 to sense when the computer is on or off based on the state of the LED. If the LED is off, the IRS5 knows to turn the system on and visa-versa. The user simply presses the IR remote’s power button and the IRS5 will determine whether to turn the system on or off. The IRS5 is powered by either a separate 5 volt power adaptor (the same as most cell phones), or by an internal USB header that maintains power while the computer is in the off state. Once the computer is on and into the operating system, the IRS5 communicates with the OS via the MB USB header to control the compatible software.
