I've been using lirc successfully using receiver from zapway. Now I am
building a set-top box based on a low power Via Epia ITX MB, but the serial
port only puts out 5.8v. As the receiver will be inside the case, I was
wondering if I could doctor it and supply the 5v from a floppy power cable,
and if so what circuitry would be required? I'm no electronics guy, but
reading the docs would suggest that only the pull-up resistor would be
required. is the correct, or am I missing something obvious?
Many thanks for any help.
