MCE usb remote is a good choice or you could build your own very easily using an FTDI component and an IR receiver. In either case it will cost you about $25 or less.
Btw, I actually use a couple ION boxes for VDR. I don't use a server/client setup however because from what I understand it just isn't mature enough. I would like full independent osd's on each client, epg is populated by server and shared with clients, and good handling of timers. And I don't want to have to run a bunch of plugins or extra junk to make it work. If I wanted a slapped together solution out of whatever was laying around, I'd just run mythtv but that's not what I'm looking for. Come to think of it, I wonder how the new OSD system will factor into having multiple clients, or if that aspect is being considered at all. Probably not. But that's talk for another thread anyways I think. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
