I posted a review on tweakers.net also (in Dutch). Perhaps there might be some usefull comments posted regarding the IR receiver...

I've posted a topic on AVFORUMS fishing for more information:
This is a major let down, the integration IR reciever for me is one of the stand out features of the Asrock that separates it from other nettops like the new Acer Revo. I could have got the new Acer Revo R3610 for about £15 more and that comes with 4gb of RAM 500gb HD an Windows 7! (sans remote)

Yes, apologies for that! This is the only place I've found other ION 330HT owners who are running Linux so it seemed a good opportunity to ask!
Quote:About the IR, it really is present, as you can see when you open te box. There's cable running from the IR led on the front to the pci thingy in the box. Also, the box does have some unrecognised hardware under linux and it does indeed work under Windows. But thats not the point here. A collegue of mine pointed out the driver could be the winbond one you can select when configuring Lirc, but that doesn't seem to work either. (There's a post about that on here.
You're misunderstanding here. This is not an LIRC problem, this is a problem that the IR chipset used in the device does not even show up in Linux. There is no mention of it in lsusb or lspci from what I can see, and nothing in dmesg about it.
What should happen (in a simplified sense) is that the device should be detected at boot time and a kernel module should then be assigned to control it (this is the "driver"). With an IR module this would normally mean that the device then becomes available somewhere in /dev/ (normally /dev/input/something or /dev/lirc0). This isn't happening and we need to find why not.
I don't have this box anymore so I can't find more info, but can any of you give me a full listing of /dev/? I am particularly interested in whether there is any /dev/tty* devices listed?
Also, I am beginning to suspect that this IR receiver is a serial device, so can anyone try "modprobe lirc_serial" and post the output of that?

I'll have a go tonight when I get back from work, what command do I need to run to list the contents of Dev? sorry I'm a newcomer to linux.
- therealdude - 2009-11-19 17:23
As I don't have a chance of using the box tonight... Just type
But, I can tell you right now, there are several tty(S)*'s in /dev (don't know how many right now). Don't know about the modprobe though, haven't tried that...
@BlueC, seems I did misunderstood, sorry for that. Also, I'm not that experienced with the linux driver scene, so I thought Lirc was the way to go in this case...

Sorry off topic, but where did you find the ion 330HT for sale? I can't find it anywhere.
- therealdude - 2009-11-19 17:41
Well, for me (in the Netherlands), you can get it at these shops

On a side note, we could possibly never get a linux driver for this.
What external reciever & remote controller could I use with linux is it just the offical Microsoft MCE Controller?
Some new output - marsjall - 2009-11-19 19:49
this is all the tty*-devices in /dev
and if I do some modprobe, I get this result
the bottom of my dmesg now says
trying some irw-tricks
