I have only 2 5.25" bays in my HTPC case. So, I paired this with a bracket that allows me to use a 3.5" bay and a slim optical drive in 1 5.25" bay. I really like this unit. Please note that I really only use this for controlling Windows Media Center and turning my HTPC on/off. If you want to controll everything with your remote, internet, mouse tracking/clicking, etc, the iMON software is not up to the task of eliminating the need for a mouse and keyboard.

Pros:
- It blends in great with my case
- Adds functionality required for an Home Theater PC
- No need to get up from the couch
- The instructions are legable and adequate for installation.

Cons:
- I got a faulty remote (RM100)
- Bright blue LED power indicator never turns off. Cover it!
- No battery backup for the units memory
- Software is not what it could be
- Takes some computer skill to install! Took me 3 days of tweaking to set it up the way I want. I'm sure I will find more things to change. It will take quite some time before a "technophobe" can use it without running into problems. A "technosav" can expect to spend at least half a day getting it installed and working for multiple programs. You have been warned.

INSTALLATION:
1) For constant power and to power on from complete shutdown, it has a 24 pin power adapter that ataches between your power supply and the motherboard.

2) The case power switch plugs it into the back of the sensor. The sensor's power switch plugs into the motherboard. IR remotes can switch on the computer and the case switch still works.

3) It comes with an internal USB to USB adapter.

Just what I needed to completely my HTPC build. Wiring is a bit messy, however it works just fine. Software is confusing and as others have mentioned, prepared to spend part of a day messing with it. The in app upgrade link doesn't work but I found the upgrade through Google and updated it. I would've liked to see the blue light go off when it's not being told commands, however it's a minor annoyance that is easily remedied via a very small piece of electrical tape.

Through a lot of tinkering around, I finally was able to get the software to work in conjunction with my Logitech Harmony 650 remote. As another reviewer mentioned, setting the IMON software to MCE remote did the trick for me.

Linking buttons found built into the IMON software to execute via the Harmony, such as the Quick Launch function to the Guide Button on my Harmony to Launch Plex Bind the various keyboard commands to the buttons on my Harmony using the IMON software and that's where it gets a bit confusing. Cross linking the RC button name in IMON over to the buttons on the Harmony.

Following some of the helpful hints from RIP-Felix's review helped in setting mine up.

I already had an HTPC with an iMon/Soundgraph external infra-red receiver plus WMC-compatible remote. However, the external infra-red USB receiver was incapable of powering on the HTPC via remote. This is a relatively common issue with HTPC infra-red receivers. A common infra-red receiver at best receives USB standby power, only operates via USB signal, and must interface with the installed software to operate the PC - thus common receivers can only power off a PC but never power one on. Standard receivers *can* wake a PC from standby but standby can be problematic for some custom PC's.

The Antec Veris Basic Multimedia Station resolves the power-on issue. The unit connects internally to the PC case/motherboard power switch header and also into the motherboard ATX power connector harness. Additionally, the MM Station has a standard USB connector to connect to an external USB port. Note that the kit comes with a wiring module for connecting the USB into an internal motherboard USB header.

The unit works as intended - it allows me to power on/off the PC with a standard media center type remote control. I already had the iMon remote software setup so I only had to install the physical unit and cycle the PC power once (booting to Windows) to recognize the change in USB ports.

Note the following:
- The mounting holes in the unit are not well placed. One seemed slightly out of alignment but I just put some pressure on the bracket and the screw went in fine.
- The iMon Windows software is awkward but functional. I've used the software for some time...it's poorly designed with poor support and has some annoying "features"...but it works. There is not a large selection of alternatives but I believe most people will find it acceptable.

Turns on the computer 95% of the time as it should but once loaded has lots of annoying delays and double commands between remote clicks and computer response. Sometimes it goes crazy and keeps flashing a key over and over. The setup is buggy at best. I'll have to play around with it more to see if it improves.

This little thing is extremely flexible. You can use MCE command or just map keystrokes, even mouse clicks. For someone who's building a highly complex HTPC with multiple external players, you can't do better than this. I own two of these and use them in my fairly complex HTPCs (XBMC loading multiple video players based on extension).

The only drawback is that the Harmony One is really slow with this receiver. I resorted to using the tiny remote it comes with. Other IR receivers work fine. Not sure what the issue is.
