Biostar Gift - BIO-REMOTE

5 out of 5 eggs Great for Media Center 08/13/2014

This review is from: Biostar Gift - BIO-REMOTE

Pros: Works great with Media Center. I got this just for the IR header. Enable the CIR in BIOS of my TA970 MB install the driver and you're good to go. I have no problem powering on my HTPC from S5 state. Use this with my Harmony Smart Control and everything works fine. I have a USB TV card and am able to watch, record, pause live local TV with the Harmony remote.

Cons: The only con I have is that the computer will sometimes turn on when I'm using the Harmony Remote for other tasks. Not a big deal as I have my HTPC on most of the time anyway.

Other Thoughts: Don't know why the other reviewer can't power on from the off state, maybe need to install the driver from Biostar? i have no problems with the same board.

BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For $55 can't be beat. Everything worked that I put in it. Use it in a HTPC, got the Bio-Remote, plugged in and it controls all Media Center needs, couldn't have been easier.
Have a Vishera 6300 and AMD-260x with 24Gb Ram. Have been using it for 9 months now, no problems.

Cons: Could use more USB 3.0 ports but have a 4 port hub plugged in and it works great with no external power.

Other Thoughts: The Bio-Remote is a great deal with this MB for your HTPC needs. It's only $10 here on Newegg and just plugs into the CIR header on the MB, just install the drivers and it works great with my Harmony Remote.

Pros: Installed in my HP Chromebook 14, no problems and works great so far

Cons: 256Gb would be better...

Other Thoughts: Put in Chromebook, installed Chrome OS, booted right up. Installed Ubuntu with Crouton and both OS's run just fine. Boots up in seconds.
