I purchased a windows MCE remote, used the USB IR receiver, and stuck  
the Remote in a basket behind the TV..

The remote I use is the Harmony 880.. it works beautifully with lirc.   
Is ultimately customizable.. I've I 've even been able to get   
logitech's database team add 10 more "custom" hex codes to my database  
so I can assign additional "custom" functions in my lirc configuration.

I love the harmony remote, and better yet.. My wife loves it too ;-)    
I wouldn't be able to "pry it from her cold dead fingers"..

I'd highly recommend it.
