Hi

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?
