IR receiver for use with Harmony remote


Standard Member

I've just ordered one of the Harmony 360s.

One of the things I'm keenest on would be controlling my computer using it.

Can I use any USB/ IR receiver, like say this one


Or does it have to have something specifically clever about it?

Gosh, those seem awfully expensive for a simple bit of kit!

I've found a few cheap IR receivers on Ebay but they seem to all be serial based as opposed to USB.

Would the IR receiver from a cheap PC remote control package work I wonder?
