No remote (it's the MCE version), but $63 and no rebates and free 
shipping.  IMHO, being forced to use an IR-based RC5 remote is too much 
of a hassle, anyway.  I have two PVR-x50 remotes I'm not using (one from 
my PVR-350 and one from the PVR-250).  So, really, the tuner is not the 
only part of the card I paid for but am not using.


If you really want the remote, $85, no rebates, and free shipping.  But, 
you can build the serial IR receiver ( http://lirc.org/receivers.html ) 
for a lot less than $22.
