[mythtv-users] USB IR receiver for Harmony remote

I've ordered a Harmony remote but I need some advice on a USB IR 
receiver that will work with it. I've read a plethora of old threads 
many titled "best remote" or similar. I understand the harmony should 
work with a streamzap receiver or with the MCE receiver. The problem is 
it seems you have to by the remote in order to get the receiver.

So I was hoping instead of spending $30-$40 on a remote w/receiver 
package I could spend a bit less and get just the receiver. Anyone know 
one that is in Harmony database of supported devices?

I'd rather not get an extra remote that I can't use, it will just go in 
a bin with all the other remotes once the Harmony is configured.... 
Actually if there was a remote that came with TWO receivers I could use 
it on my laptop or perhaps a future frontend.

Oh, and I don't have a hauppauge card (or any tuner) in this frontend.
