[mythtv-users] LIRC and serial to usb

I've decided on the IR Receiver from irblaster.info.  This particular 
one uses a serial port.  However, the motherboard I'm building this 
system on does not have an integrated serial port. 

Two questions:

1) The motherboard has a connector for a serial port, just needs the 
port/bracket (not a card).  Has anyone found *just* a bracket for serial 
ports to be connected to the motherboard?

2) I've found serial to USB adapter cables.  Is this a viable solution?  
Has anyone tried this with success?
