Hi Markus,

From the various source of reading, it does look like the display/IR is
based on FTDI FT232R USB to serial chip. What kind of "special wiring"
you are talking about? Although I connect the display directly to a
internal USB header; is it possible that the "wiring" is done internally?

Cheers,
Santanu
