tbh, i use the Logitech Harmony remote, which i believe are IMON compatible,
so IR transmitter compatibility isnt much of an issue.

VFD would be what i'd go for anyway; it would blend in nicely with my Onkyo
AVR display.

as i mention in my previous post, current LIRC/TBS on the later
kernels/distros is broken, so i am planning to replace my MCEUSB kit with
something that would work. it's only 2 FE's, so cost is next to nothing.
that obviously depends on what happens between now and mythtv pre-requisite
of a kernel newer than mythbuntu 10.10.
