I'm assuming you want to use a serial receiver and go into the port
on the PVR card?
I'm not positive about this, but I believe that the HogPaws cards
uses some interface to the IIC bus and does not use a standard serial
port or receiver.
There is probably a way you could interface a serial receiver to the
IIC port on the PVR, or, more likely, a way to do so directly without
having to do through an RS-232 stage.
I suspect you would be better off using one of the "off-the-
(internet)-shelf" serial or USB designs though, more tested and
better support if you run into problems.
