    One of the applications is using an Advanced for running Kodi, with the need to have IR control. I don't need HDMI CEC, as the signals come from my Logitech universal remote control.

    Yet I'm not sure at this moment if it will work. Is the IR connected to the Arduino or to the X86? Will Kodi somehow automatically recognize there is a IR available? What would I have to tell my Logitech to use for device?

    Neither.
    That consumer IR receiver connects only to STM32.
    Currently there is no (or buggy) code handling IR signal within the STM32 microcontroller.

    I was afraid so. I thought the problem was with the HDMI CEC, but apparently no :(. Now I have to repurpose two UDOO Advanced boards.

    I'm using LIRC with a cheap IR receiver going to a GPIO pin on a Raspberry Pi. I haven't looked into the GPIO pins on the X86 but might be a possibility. Or perhaps a FLIRC USB device.

    Flirc is not cheap but it is amazing device.

    @Udoo Team
    Is there a working IR functionality with Bios 1.03?

    Laura, thanks for the info, but is there a HowTo for IR also?

    I bought a Flirc and it was worth every penny. You literally avoid having to deal with IR Blasters. Just plug in the USB and you are done.
