Playing with hardware is hard, I was able to decode a IR signal from a TV remote but I can't get my contraption to send a IR signal. Now after a day of trying I suspect that I broke the IR LED but have no idea how to test it.

And I've been trying to get my external sound card to work for half an hour.
Anyway, now finally I have the dream setup, I can switch to use my keyboard, mouse and sound card and screen on my stationary NUC or my laptop connected with one single cable...
