I'm very happy with my StreamZap remote.  I know that's not really
what you are asking, but it comes with an excellent USB IR receiver
that works with all the remotes I've ever tried with it (3).

It's not restricted to just the remote it comes with.  For about $30,
I guess you could throw out the remote and have a nice USB IR receiver
to use with your favorite remote.  :-)


Good luck on finding directions with a IR receiver for how to
configure with lirc.  In my experience, the StreamZap seems to have
good lirc support and is supported by MythDora, KnoppMyth, and
MythBuntu as part of the installation and/or reconfiguration.
