    Default Linux Compatibility: SilverStone LC16M VFD + Remote

    This is an entry for Phoronix LCH. Feel free to comment on the Linux compatibility for the SilverStone LC16M VFD + Remote in this thread.

    SilverStone LC16M VFD + Remote



    Description:
    Hardware Notes: LCD and remote are powered via the LIRC iMon Pad driver. LCD works great with LCDProc. Remote is a pile of junk. It's touch sensitive with multiple codes sent per command, so it's pretty much worthless. The IR receiver is also a pile of junk. The buttons of the front are standard USB keyboard buttons that you can reprogram.

    The remote is a bit sluggish, but I wouldn't call it worthless. I've been running mythtv box with gentoo using one of these for over a year and the remote has worked ok all that time. Note that to get the best configuration you should get a custom patch for lirc which enables the cursor keys to work either as keys or a mouse. The latter through X11 so that you just define it up in your xorg.conf.
