Option 3 was myroute, but that's cause I already had years of Tivo and hence was attached to the Tivo remote so I needed an IR Receiver that could handle it (the RC5 protocol used by the hauppauge IR Receiver did not work with the Tivo remote). If I wasn't so stubborn, option 2 would be a much easier process

Even the newer grey Hauppauge remotes are relative garbage, in my
opinion. I have two of them, and I replaced both of them with universal
remotes. I'm partial to your second option there.
