    Laptop DVD-RW Drives?

    Hey guys,this might be a really stupid set of questions but it's something i started wondering again the other day that puzzled me a while back.I have a Toshiba Laptop that came pre-installed with Media Center 2005.It came included with a media center remote and IR reciever and another small cable that i never found the use of.


    According to what i could find it's called an IR Transciever yet i can not figure out what its function would be and there is nothing about it in the notebooks manual.

    My Second question is about the IR reciever.

    This is obviously for use with the media center remote control however on the rear of the reciever there are 3 connections,one USB for connecting to the notebook and two "mini/headphone" jacks labeled "1" and "2" which i can not find any info about there uses.

    If anyone knows about this would be great to finally figure out these answers lol

    I found a 345 page manual for that notebook. It seems to cover everything. You can download it here. http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp...hiba+F25-AV205

    Thanks alot guys,I tryed searching there but the guides i kept coming up with seemed to only deal with the actual notebook and not accessories.

    EDIT:seems these two guides are both the same one i got with the notebook and downloaded at toshiba's site.But unfortunatly doesnt seem to mention anything reguarding accessories only main features of the laptop itself.
