Its included with MythDora, should already be on your system. (/sbin/ 
modinfo ivtv)

There are PVR-150 packages that come with remotes and IR interfaces.  
One variant, the IR module plugs into the PVR-150, the other, the IR  
module is USB. In my experience, the USB one (as well as the remote  
it comes with) is far better.

Ultimately, they're the same thing. If a certain someone (me) finally  
gets off their ass and does a number of things they've been meaning  
to do for some time to help out the MythDora project, more and more  
people may start using MythDora as their base... :)
