MEGA PC in PC mode and the Hifi capabilities

Hey gang,

I'm a relatively skilled C++ programmer with some time on my hands and a new MEGA PC. What I'd like to know are a few things:

  1. Does the hard/firmware allow the IR-port to be detected in the OS?
  2. Can the LCD display be programmatically set?
  3. Can the buttons be programmatically handled?
    [/list=1]

    The reason I ask this, is to determine whether it's a time related issue why the support in PC mode is so limited or whether there are hardware constraints. I'd be willing to help out in programming a driver for windows and some other stuff.

    Let me know,

    Martin

    PS I read the FAQ but found the answers to these questions sketchy at best and would like to have some hard confirmation

Whether the MEGA PC supports IR-port will mostly depend on the hardware that you've got for it.

For the other 2 questions, I'll try to help you ask the higher authorities.

Next, if you would like to provide more help on programming the Hi-Fi mode of MEGA PC support, you may send an email to MSI personnally on this regard.

All the Best... :D!!!

Well, I've got my own IR-port, but found no support on the mainboard for it. I could be mistaken of course since I didn't try too hard yet. What I meant was, is it possible to have the IR-port that is already in the PC to be detected by Windows?

By possible I mean is the hardware/firmware up to that task.

I've tried sending a few other companies personal mail and that usually doesn't work too well. Maybe MSI is different, I'll give it a shot.

Thanks for the help in getting answers.

What mainboard? Do you mean what version? If you do, I have no clue I'd need to look into that. If you mean whether I took out the standard mainboard of the MEGA PC and put in a different one, then no, I didn't.
