  1. I got my FLIRC last week, and it has tested flawlessly so far with my TV's remote and my old WDTV remote (my Rii i25 is on the way). My question is regarding whether I can use a sharpie, or possibly some thin paint, to make the FLIRC as black as possible so that it blends in more with my HTPC and doesn't stick out (aesthetically-speaking). I quickly-browsed the forum and saw someone saying that electrical tape would block the IR signals; that's not what I want (plus I'm not sure a taped-up FLIRC looks great). But would sharpie or some thin paint also block IR signals?* Has anyone tried to do something like this with/without success? My other option I guess would be to use a USB extension from one of the back ports and lay the FLIRC on the top of the HTPC as far back as possible while still functioning. On a side note, is there a reason, other than this being a small business, that a black FLIRC is not an option? *My undergrad degree is a B.A., not a B.S., so I'm sorry if this is a dumb question.
