Yes lirc has support for both of these, there are really 2 main options the 
iguna-ir and command-ir (expensive).

I have not personally used either, ive just come across them while researching 
for possible channel changers. I ended up using firewire to my 6200.
But both of these are well known to mythtv users and im sure if you search or 
ask you can get more details.
Although you would still be trail blazing and taking some risk in that your 
hoping that the usb passthrough will work with these devices.

Right, would that use LIRC?  If you could give me a little info on     how those 
work, I would appreciate it.
I just want to keep it nice and simple.
