Be forewarned. The remote (an imon-pad) is a pile of junk. Because it
works/almost works as a mouse, the up/down/lewft/right buttons don't
have a 'click' when pressed. Ultimatly you either don't trigger a
keypress or send too many. The IR receiver ONLY works with the imon
remote as well, so with my LC-11M I had to build a serial receiver and
mount it next to the vfd in order to get a decent remote working.

Just my 0.02
