My TV may not be RF, but my wireless keyboard is.  I'd really like a
universal remote that handles both IR and RF, so I can control the
entire entertainment system with only one remote.  I want to control
the Myth box through the RF receiver, since it will stay hooked up
anyway (in case keyboard use on the console is ever necessary), and so
I can avoid the hassle of lirc.

Does anyone know of a good IR/RF universal remote?  Bonus points if
it's as sexy as the Harmony...
