View Full Version : IR out hardware?

This is fine if your squeezebox is going to output the IR signal
to other devices. I'd like to see a way for slimserver to output
the IR from the server through a serial (or USB or parallel or
whatever) onto the IR wire. I have a server very near my wiring
hub. My slimserver would be a nice relay for IR, but there are
some distict designs...

1. For control of slimserver via a hardwire IR system:
User -> IR receiver -> IR wire -> slimserver -> squeezebox

2. For control of other devices not local to squeezebox:
User -> squeezebox -> slimserver -> IR wire -> IR blaster -> Device

3. For control of other devices local to a squeezebox that
don't have hardwaire IR, but have ethernet (wired or wireless)
User -> IR receiver -> IR wire -> slimserver -> squeezebox -> i2c
(geek) connector -> device

Are there others I am missing? I'd really like to investigate
option 2 a little more. This link generally addresses using
the squeezebox to receive IR commands in either 1 or 3, right?
