This is just the sort of thing I was talking about when I said we  
needed to work on with the WiKi. I would have sworn there was some  
info there on the various different types of PVR-150 card, but either  
I'm too tired or too lazy or it just isn't where I thought it was.

Some of the PVR-150s have an interface for the Hauppauge remote  
control(s), and some (the MCE versions) do not.

If you look at the messages from IVTV at boot time you will see if  
your particular card has the interface, in which case you need the  
receiver (basically just a detector) and the remote itself.

So the first question is what type of PVR-150 do you have ?

I swear I will add this info to the WiKi as soon as I can, right  
after I patent perpetual motion :-)
