Just to clarify.  When I talked about control, I was talking about
playback control (e.g. Play, Pause, Stop), not controlling an external
IR device (e.g. STB).

So should I assume from comments that their is no IR sensor on these Revos?

I've never seen an IR keyboard.  Any pointers on good deals on these.
