The case has an external volume knob, and comes with a remote control.
Audio : the case has two cables, one labeled
F_AUDIO, and one labeled
AC_97.according to the mainboard manual, there is one
F_AUDIO connector, and it can deal with either type of cable.i have tried both, but the volume knob doesn't work (I have Windows 7 installed with all drivers).
Can i make the knob work with the mainboard?what would i need to make it work?
Remote control : what do i need to connect to make the remote control work?i can't see an"IR"cable anywhere.turns out the remote just needed new batteries and it now just magically works - i assume through the USB connector.
Answer 1 :
I have the same case for my HTPC, in black.Mine came with a remote, but i prefer to use my Microsoft MCE remote, which works with the case's receiver.
If you are using Windows, you need the Soundgraph iMON software installed.if you do not use Windows, i doubt you will be able to get it working, unless somebody has made Linux drivers for it.
Answer 2 :
Have you followed the instructions in the manual section"The Display/Volume Control"(bottom of page 4 )?it describes how to install the included USB-IR-receiver-connector thingy ;) please note that there's apparently drivers to install, those should be on a CD included with your case.
For the remote : you need an MCE-compatible remote, this doesn't seem to be included.
