Interesting. I'd appreciate it if you let me know what happens.

Neat! I may have to try that, if I can find a reasoanble price on the
package. Otherwise, USB XP MCE dongle it is.  :)

I'll probably wait until the price drops - I'm still playing around with
MythTV enough that I can probably wait 3-4 months to set up some
additional front ends. Well, at the very least, I'll only pick up one to
play with before then.

Thanks for the response!
