Q: Is a USB-UIRT Kit Available?
A: No. I am selling the USB-UIRT as a fully-assembled unit
only. The primary objective of the USB product is to provide a Plug-N-Play
experience and to minimize user headaches.
Q: Why are you selling the USB-UIRT? Is it an open-source
A: I am selling the USB-UIRT partly as a desire to provide
a usable product to the HTPC enthusiast, and partly as an 'educational'
experience in retailing a product on the Web. The cost structure
of the USB-UIRT is designed to cover cost of materials and labor
and modest support. Since this is not a mass-produced item, this
cost model still allows a reasonably-priced 'hobby-style' product.
As such, the firmware/plugin/schematic are not currently open-source.
All have been developed from the 'ground up' by myself. There is
a developer's API to provide others with the ability to use
Q: What type of Support and Warranty are offered?
A: The cost structure of the USB-UIRT provides for modest
support, including ongoing development of feature enhancements.
However, no guarantee is made, either expressly or implied, of future
feature enhancements or support. Also, product returns will be accepted
for defective product within 90 days. The buyer assumes responsibility
of shipping charges. Any opening of the USB-UIRT or intentional
misuse will void such warranty. See Support
page for more information regarding warranty and legal disclaimer.
