    Hi, I'd like to intall my Minix Neo X6 behind my TV, so it is completly hidden. I use the IR remote, therefore I nedd some way to have it receive the signal. Is there a way to connect an IR receiver, maybe in the headphone port? If so, does it need any app installed in order to work? Thanks

    The headphone port is for audio out!

    So, there is no way to plug an IR receiver?

    Why would there be when there's one right at the front! o_O

    You could open up the device and extend it if you have the ability or know someone you does. :)
    Otherwise use mirrors/reflectors!

    But does it work?

    I haven't tried it, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. The usb lead is just to provide power. It basically just transmits the IR signal from the receiver part, which is placed in a visible location, to the transmitter which should be placed in front of the X6 IR receiver.
    The only issue may be powering on if there is no power to the usb.

    Yeah, I think it's the only solution. I already ordered one. Thanks :)
