i have a Harmony 670 i believe.  i'm using the IR eye from my PVR-250.
 i think pretty much any IR receiver will work with it.  any of the
receivers that are standard IR receivers.
any of the harmony remotes should handle your gear.  they all come
with software that allows you to selectively program them and choose
your components from a library of devices (may only work with Windows
and Mac, i didn't set my remote up on Linux so i don't remember).
Tiger Direct has several different Harmony models on sale (or did
i'd recommend Harmony and would buy them again. i've been very happy with it.
