Especially if you use a MCE USB remote or a haugpaugge remote.
As for remotes that I use I first purchased the MCE remote for about ~30.
On my frontend a built a serial IP adapter. the MCE is VERY easy and well
documented. the serial is somewhat documented buy you have to buy/built the
serial adapter which may be complex depending on you skills.
my 2 cents
