after reading most of the post in this thread:
Can I use a MiniTiouner Pro v1 as part of the Ryde receiver or is only the standard MT usable? Any experience in this aera?
When can I expect that the PCBs for the Ryde will be available in the shop again?
The PCBs are being ordered but you don't need them to test it. You can do limited control through SSH which will at least demonstrate compatibility but you can also wire a 3.3V IR sensor up to the GPIO with dupont cables, that's what I did initially, probably what others did too.
