I've searched a fair bit and have not found a way to use another remote with the built-in IR receiver so far.  It is a USB human interface device in the Mac OS so it is not inconceivable that it could be used to receive IR signals from non-Apple emitters.  It just looks like no one has done that work.  And it is well beyond my abilities. 

BTW, I looked at using the IR receiver in my HDHomeRun.  It is compatible with LIRC and there is a version of LIRC for the Mac that can receive signals from the HDHomeRun via the irw utility.  I need to recompile Myth to include LIRC support, however, to test how they might work together.  Real life has intruded and I won't get to that for a while...
