Building your own ir receiver is reportedly pretty straight forward; if
you want to use one of your existing remotes this is the best bet.
If not, personally i have this one:
As of today the driver i wrote for it is available with lirc. It has a USB
ir transceiver (driver only supports receive right now) and is geared
towards windows media center edition, so it's got some nifty extra
