I'm looking for an IR receiver that should support universal remotes as well 
as having some PC wakeup features.  I've seen the iMon, but I don't want an 
actual power button interrupt (unless someone can confirm that it will 
generate an ACPI event).  I've come across the IRA-3 which has a Wake-on-LAN 
(WOL) header to plug into your NIC/Motherboard which sounds like it could be 
ideal.  I'm considering the OEM version and it's a good bit cheaper than the 


I've read that it should work with LIRC using the IRMan serial protocol.  
However, I'm not sure how to program the IRA-3 as to which IR signal should 
trigger the "wakeup" command.  There is a windows binary provided, but that's 
not ideal.

I'd also like to hear what others' experiences have been.  I've found these 
threads that were mostly negative:

I'd like to hear some positive reports if there are any ;)
