I'd suggest picking up a remote which is compatible with Windows Media
Centre Edition (MCE). I've included a link to one that can be had
from Canada Computers. These remotes usually have a decent IR receiver,
and I they all have IR blasters built in too.
Once you have an MCE-compatible IR receiver, you should be able to get
all the info you need from the MythTv wiki.
For extra credit, you can probably even set up your TV's remote to work
with MythTV instead of using the MCE remote. If you decide to go this
route I can help with the details.
