Yes, Infrafred is enabled in the BIOS. I'm not sure if the hw works 
or not as this is the 1st time I've actually tried to use it. I presume
since the hw is being seen and there's no errors, that it should work. But I
don't know of any other ways to test it than running the commands / apps. If the
hw wasn't functional I would think I would get some very obvious errors or the OS/Kernel
would see it...?
