I've placed an order for a Dell Zino. I have a Harmony remote, but need a USB based IR receiver, as well as some kind of wireless keyboard with built in trackpad or trackball for very light use in my htpc setup.

Any recommendations?

I believe this should work for your USB receiver

I use a similar one in my HTPC setup and it works beautifully.

LG 55" LED TV // Onkyo TX-SR705 // Custom MediaPortal HTPC // Toshiba Blu-ray and HD-DVD // Shaw 1TB DVR // Logitech Harmony 1100 remote // Wharfedale Diamond 5.1 audio

Would this work also? It seems to include both an IR transmitter and receiver.

This is what I use with my Harmony 890. I also have a wireless mouse and keyboard for my HTPC, but I find that I rarely use them. Most of the time I just use remote desktop from my laptop to connect to the HTPC.

How does the transmitter part work? I'm not sure where it plugs in - I don't have a mini jack port for it....
