    I just bought a new desktop that I intend to use as my main entertainment hub. Toward that end, I bought a WinTV-HVR-1850 PCIe for Vista PCIe NTSC Analog and ATSC/QAM HD card to use as a TV tuner. Unfortunately, the only one I could find with the return policy I need was a White Box -- in other words, just the PCI express card, with no IR receiver or remote.

    If I have to, I can live without a remote, and just navigate with the mouse. But I was wondering if anyone can recommend any third-party USB IR receiver/remote controls in the $20-40 range that are compatible with Windows Media Center?

    Thanks -- that looks like exactly what I need, unfortunately the product is listed on the NewEgg link as deactivated.
