In general, yes. The IR receiver works for other signals...a bunch of
folks are using alternate remotes with the XBox. You need to edit the
config for the IR software...I *THINK* it's "lirc" for Xebian, but I
don't remember for sure. Search the list archives, there have been a
bunch of discussions about that in the past.
