make your own IR controller using the HOLTEK chips, very little circuitry, and you could wire a costom receiver do do eject / mod on/off, power and some other things, that would be cool.

I'd doubt that you're able to do anything with the dongle though.

other electronics............led's, in varying different lighting patterns
............LCD display for temperatures............
USB keypad thingies for emulators!,

i have a red lighted Xbox and want to put this maybe in my jewel . . . . have it start up as green. then as i reach normal operating temperatures it displays red. then if it gets hot it would turn to blue . . . . would it be to hard to hook that up?
