I have a Windows HTPC running XBMC, and I'd like to control it using my Harmony remote. I'm looking for suggestions for IR receivers that I can use - or IR receivers that come with MCE remotes.

Came across this one - anyone have any experience with it? Good, bad? Other suggestions?

That would work, but you don't need the remote since you have a universal.

The HP Media Center IR Receiver on eBay works well and can be purchased for ~$10 shipped.

Just to close this out, got my $10 IR receiver (eBay), set it up, and everything is working great. This was a useful thread to get me started (key mappings):

Look at this if you haven't already. Lots of Harmony codes for the MCE remote.
