Check out the USB Iguana IR from iguanaworks.net
A thumb-drive sized infra-red receiver/transmitter which works with
LIRC. If you have USB ports on the front of the case, you may not need
to use the floppy drive space. $40 and worth it.
Note that this little unit can easily live on the end of a USB cable to
control a hidden backend or frontend box.
Otherwise, if you need a receiver, I recall that the Imon line has a
floppy-drive-sized receiver drop-in. You'll have to hunt that down
'cause I cannot remember the manufacturer's name..
