Check out this article on Missing Remote: http://www.missingremote.com/review/intel-core-i5-2400s-and-bh67gd-micro-atx-motherboard. It describes the advantages of our CIR on Intel motherboards vs. using a USB version.
Here is a quote from the article:
"It has been said before, but bears repeating because of how useful the included Consumer Infrared (CIR) header is, putting it on the short list of favorite motherboard features alongside user configurable power LED behavior when in standby. Because the feature is not enabled by default in BIOS, it will need to be enabled after installing a CIR. Then after the Nuvoton (Winbond) drivers are installed it acts as a fully functional Microsoft eHome RC6 IR receiver. This not only frees up a USB port and allows for a cleaner install because the receiver can be mounted inside the chassis, but also includes a feature not supported by the standard USB receivers - wake from off (S5) and hibernate (S4) in addition to standby (S3).
You will have to download the motherboard driver for this unit. It is free on Intel's site or on the CD that comes with your motherboard. The one you want is the Winbond or Nuvoton driver at the Intel Download Center depending on your motherboard. After you download the driver you must activate it in your BIOS.
