The differences between IR signals, and the complexity of an 
individual keypress, are so huge that there's very little chance of 
there being a conflict between devices. If there was, you'd already 
be noticing problems.

I suppose there's a slight advantage in processor usage to using a 
receiver that's bound to only one protocol (like Hauppauge uses), but 
from a standpoint of conflicts, there's no reason to limit yourself.
