IR Receiver to turn ON/OFF the computer

Posted on 2011-05-01
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

Please tell me if you know internal IR receivers which will connect directly to the power switch of the motherboard. The IR receiver should be able to:
  - receive IR signal from a remote control
  - learn remote control codes (having a push button switch which will start learning)

I found myself some, but I need more available models.

Thank you so much.

    You've already found the most common models.

    The 3rd one in your list -- the Antec Multi-Station Basic -- is an excellent unit;  but the remote control that comes with it does not work well ... so plan to replace it.

    The unit works just fine with a standard media center remote or a Harmony  [I have several of these and use them with both MCE remotes and Harmony universal remotes].
