I need to be able to shut the machine down when power goes off in an automated manner. My UPS can *only* send IR commands. I would like for the UPS to be able to shut the NUC down when it needs to. On my old machine, the IR port worked fine, I used Eventghost to capture a IR code, and, when it got it, it forced a shutdown. I cannot get eventghost to recognize the IR port and get any signal from it no matter what remote source.
So, is there some trick to this consumer IR port? I just want to be able to receive some IR command to some program which can then shut down the machine. Nothing else. I do not have nor do I want MCE. Port is enabled in the BIOS. Driver is loaded.
Thanks for joining the NUC community.
I understand you have an UPS that works with IR commands and the NUC does not detect it.
At this point, make sure you have loaded the latest NUC BIOS, this would be version 0026
Here is the link for the latest BIOS:
