The MCE is not only missing the remote itself but also the receiver  
for it on the card.

The MCE also has 2 RCA jacks for baseband audio input as opposed to  
the 1/8" 3-pin jack that the normal version has. It has room for the  
RCAs because it doesn't have the jack for the IR receiver.

What version of tuner is always a crapshoot with any version of any PVR.
