For anyone who's also interested in a ASRock H67 / Ivy Bridge HD4000 combination: I contacted the support, let's see now what they'll say...

    Then you won't be able to use that receiver. There is a usb one on that website too. I do not know if you will be able to wake from s5. But wake from sleep over usb should be ok assuming your motherboard supports it.

    I have received the receiver and installed it without much effort.
    The mounting bracket is useful for the fc08 case because it fits exactly into the corner by the ir window and lines the receiver up nicely to the window too.
    The metal bracket comes with a couple of washers that stop the back of the circuit board short circuiting so I put them in too.
    I just used double sided tape to hold it all together. Well, I would have used double sided tape but didn't have any so I used my wife's boob tape instead :)
    So it was boob tape onto the case (on the same side as the heat sink), then bracket, then boob tape, then washers, then boob tape, then receiver. I attached it to the case last, of course.

    There is an option to turn on the cir in the uefi. I checked that was on, then installed the driver from the asrock site and it appeared as both a nuvoton cir device and an ehome device in device manager.
    I selected mce remote in standard mp config, rather than using irss, and my harmony one remote is now working fine. I haven't used one with mp before. I may want to switch a couple of the button mappings around but that is for another day.

    Are there any updates here? Anyone find a good motherboard?

    Since I've got a dedicated TV-server, is it ok to get the ASrock H77 Pro4-M motherboard for my client PC?

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H77 Pro4-M/?cat=Specifications

    And then if I get these three:

    http://www.cohaus-berlin.de/shop/RC...acket-for-internal-CIR-USB-receiver::126.html

    http://www.cohaus-berlin.de/shop/RC...r-for-CIR-IR-Receiver-Model-CIR2-01::131.html

    I should be good to go right?¨

    I've also taken a look at some FM2 motherboards from ASRock

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A75M-ITX/?cat=Specifications
    http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A75M-DGS/?cat=Specifications
    http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A75 Pro4-M/?cat=Specifications

    Some of them are listed with IR-header, others with CIR-header and others with both CIR and IR-header, what's the difference between CIR and IR?
