I've been looking at these, and they seem to have two shortcomings:
1.) They seem to fail on a regular basis, needing a battery terminal 
short via a paperclip
    to bring them back to life. If this is hecka frequent, it could get 
highly annoying, but
    if it's just once a month or once every three months or something 
then it wouldn't be
    a big deal.

2.) I can't seem to determine definitively whether or not LIRC support 
the newer remote
     hardware. The front page to the LIRC project says it does, but then 
it links to a thread
     that ultimately says it doesn't.

I especially like that this remote is USB and lights up. Can someone who 
owns one of these
comment on these two things?
