That was something I was wondering as well.  My MCE remote has it's own
USB dongle I'd have thought it'd work fine with the appropriate lirc
stuff installed. 

I'm not sure on the over/under of an MCE remote working with a
'somewhat' hacked AppleTV (i.e. ATV + sshd hack + mythtv as app) saying
that I've heard the Apple remote works a-ok in this configuration, I
assume it's pretending to be a keyboard or something.
