Quite a few, if not all, of the MCE receivers have a universal "bit mode"
for use with software decoding -- this permits them to work with pretty
much any IR remote control.

If the original poster gets "stuck" with that avenue, then a simple FTDI
based IR receiver is easy to assemble for about $20, and works with everything,
including my small grey Hauppauge RC5 remote controls.

Another option is to just stuff a PVR-250 card into the frontend,
and use it just for the RC interface.  I've got a leftover if you need one.
