Tom, is that for the remote, the USB I/R dongle, or both?
i currently have a Logitech Harmony 670 as my remote and i'm using the
I/R receiver that came with my PVR-250.  but in my new ION F/E (that
should arrive today :) i won't have room for the PVR-250, so no I/R
initially i'm planning on trying to use the I/R receiver that's built
into my HDHR, but i've heard that's tricky to get working and then a
so-so solution...
