[mythtv-users] low-cost low-grief remote

I've been trying to understand what array of remote options there are 
out there for MythTV, but I haven't been able to piece together the 
information I need. I've been reading about remotes that can be gotten 
on the cheap, but the documentation seems to be completely unaware that 
they all need an IR receiver. My tv card has a remote, with an IR 
receiver, but it seems to be a waste of space, since I haven't been able 
to get it to do anything but get irrecord to fail. Speaking of which, 
I'd like a low-grief solution, meaning something highly compatible with 
MythTV, and simple to configure.
    So can someone recommend a compatible model of remote and IR 
receiver for not too much? I hear that places like Radio Shack and Best 
Buy probably have the material I'm looking for, or in this country: The 
Source and Future Shop.
