I ordered something called a "USB Infrared Toy v2" which promises to process signals in the right format. About USD$20 with shipping.  Not much risk at that price.

I also ordered the complete HP MCE remote kit as a back up.

Thanks for the offer! I wanted to do that, but I'm using an older case that only accepts low-profile cards with just a PCI slot (not PCI-E) available.  A couple of other problems with the rather old board/case combo not worth getting into.  Bottom line, I don't want to mess with it too much.
