[mythtv-users] Sell Me On a Remote / IR Receiver

	I've had really good luck with an IR keyboard and a learning remote.  The
IR keyboard is nice to stick in a drawer for when you want to do searches
etc. with it.  Plus, since it acts as a ps/2 keyboard (usb ones are
available), there's no fussing with lirc, which I found a bit painful.
	I ended up with the cheapest keyboard from Fentek, and I'm using a Pronto
remote that I've had for quite a while.

Subject: [mythtv-users] Sell Me On a Remote / IR Receiver

Well, I've just about got my Myth box up and running.  I'm going for a
"little bit" of overkill since this box will be a media *server* as well
as the Myth controller.  It's running on a Tyan Thunder S2567 with dual
1.0GHz Tualatins.  My TV receiver is the Hauppauge PVR-350.  So far,
it's all running satisfactorily.  However, as I bought the PVR-350 on
eBay, the seller neglected to include the remote or the IR receiver.

So, I'm in the market for one. This box is a christmas gift for my wife
(her request since she'd heard so much about MythTV), so I need the IR
and remote to be (a) easy to set up for me and (b) easy to use for her.

I'm open to just about anything since it's for the Mrs.

thanks all!
