    Default B75M-ITX board power on using CIR header

    I would like to know if this motherboard can be powered on utilizing an IR sensor connected to the CIR header.

    Specifically, I would like to the use Inteset USB Internal Infrared (IR) Receiver. USB Internal Infrared (IR) Receiver Only with Cable and Mounting Bracket. Specialty Computer Products

    I believe that it is possible to do with an external USB IR receiver, but I prefer to have the IR receiver mounted on the case for a cleaner looking installation.

    I have built a HTPC running WMC and am now trying to develop the hardware list for the three extenders that I will add to the network.

    I would think since the CIR header is present that it should work just fine for powering up the pc...but I don't know for sure.

    I have an HTPC using a Z68 PRO 3M, and I use the Asrock sensor (comes with their remote) plugged into a front USB port of my nMediaPC 5000 case. You have to plug the USB port into the CIR header on the motherboard.
    I bought the remote/sensor off Ebay but Asrock probably still sells them.

    Hopefully you can get specific info about your board.

    It would appear so after reading THIS thread. HTPC must be in S5 state and also you must either change the pins on the included generic(?) Inteset cable to match ASRock's pinout our buy the ASRock cable from Inteset themselves.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    wardog - thank you for the reply and the great info in your signature. I updated my signature and system components in my profile. I checked out the PSU calculator and it stated tat 198W was needed. Again, thanks for the info since I was planning on using a PSU that was only 200W but am now planning on a 300W. I will also make sure to purchase the ASRock cable so that I do not have to change any pins.

    I am not familiar with S5 state. If what I just read I understood correctly since this motherboard has a CIR header (I assume for this purpose) if the HTPC is powered down power remains on at the CIR header therefore providing power to the IR sensor so that a remote can power on the HTPC.

    thanks again!

    You're welcome.

    From what I understand having never set one up with a remote is the motherboard will need configured to remain in/at the ACPI S5 state (normal Windows "Shut down' is S5, not Hibernate or other). In looking at BIOS settings in the online manual "Deep Sleep" already defaults to "Enabled in S5" and the other, "USB Keyboard/Remote Power On" will need to be set Enabled for an external input(MCE remote) to wake/boot the system..

    ASRocks own MCE remote, the ASRock Smart Remote lists the CIR receiver it uses as compatible with your B75M-ITX, so yes, that is the CIR's intended use.
