Does anybody know, how old exactly the Adaptec Airport is?
(if it helps: with IRDA i should probably? use the old_belkin driver)

I still could not find out, what chip (if any) that dongle uses. (I'm
hoping there is a more recent "clone" of it, that is more supported and/or
Another name for it is apa9320

In the specs on mobilix it says, that it can do 38Khz. (but i dont know,
if this means "it can talk to remotes".

What kind of range can i expect from this device ( and other devices...)
If i cant use the adaptec dongle over at least 3-4 meters with a remote, i
will buy a new adapter.
Hama sells one in Germany, I saw an infrared pyramid from Hama in a
"PC-Specialist" shop in Saarbruecken. Has anybody got any experience
and/or knowledge about this adapter?
