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.
