IR reciever

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
"You will need an IR receiver (and/or a RF receiver/converter for the higher end models that reside out-of-sight) which is usually not included with such remotes."

So I built my HTPC and I have a harmony remote. How do I get my HTPC and remote talking. In the complete beginners guide I quoted the above comment, but unsure what to buy and where.

You may be looking for something like this.

Find out from manufacturer which one will work with your remote.

The HP USB IR Receivers on eBay work well with Harmony remotes I believe.
