DIY streamer + web control of IR remotes. Fanless PC, Linux, Docker, Roon Server, USB IR remote

Instructions and resources for setting up a DIY Roon Server using Linux, Docker and a USB IR remote.

I had a spare fanless industrial PC at work, so I turned it into a streamer. Runs Roon Server and streams audio via USB DAC. My USB DAC doesn’t support digital volume, so I added a USB IR transmitter and configured the remote for my DAC. I can control my volume from a web page, and even mapped volume controls to my mouse.
