I taked that IR receiver module from old / broken video recorder.
It needs only one resistor, one capasitor, 5v from PSU and one wire goes to serial port.
With IR Assistant and WinLirc its possible to do almost anything you want by any remote controller.

http://www.lirc.org/receivers.html theres one example schematic. I modified it a little bit by taking 5v power from psu instead of RST pin, 5v regulator and diode.

I were so stupid that removed the "radiation shield" of receiver. It taked so much errors from my computer that I had to put some grounded tin foil about that.

The values of capasitor and resistor you can take from another link (4,7K and 4,7uF). And try to find some tutorials for the softwares because its so long story to tell..but shortened: First teach the command for WinLirc and then config the IR assistant to run things when key pressed.

03.01.2009 21:58 djsepii have made one myself too, its handy but now i dont have seriel port in my mobo so i dont have it in use, but i recommend this mod for all you htpc users.
03.01.2009 21:06 pete21could you post an easy guide on how i could build this i have a old psu and a video rec i could use to and wouldent mind trying this :-)
