Same as the previous poster I am in the UK but I use Sky.

I have the redremote serial (link already posted) and it was a doddle to 
setup.. although I did have to configure it on a windows box first (no 
big deal - and only took 30 seconds with the supplied windows application)

little bit of sticky-tape to attach to the IR on the front of the Sky 
box and I was away.. very reliable too

As already mentioned it takes a couple of seconds to switch channels but 
as you will soon realise this isn't a problem as with Myth you'll spend 
all your time watching stuff already recorded earlier.

Have fun!
