I'm using the IR receiver that came with my no longer used AverTV Combo Tuner.
The Logitech software has now way of knowing what IR receiver is installed.
The proper way to input the 2nd edition is:
Device type: Computer -> Media Center PC
Model: Windows Media Center SE
Pulled from here
Either way, a typical USB IR receiver will NOT turn your PC on from a powered off state. However, it can be used to wake it from S3 sleep. I leave mine on 24/7 so none of that is a concern for me.
