Well...not using Myth currently...couldn't stop it from crashing CONSTANTLY!
Sure wish I could have gotten it to work...ended up with Windows Media
Center. (GRRR...but it does work!)
However, when working with Myth, I did purchase the Logitech MX-5000
keyboard and mouse combo. This generally worked well, although it would
disconnect once in a while. Also purchased a Philips IR (Model SMK-8630)
keyboard and reciever for 20 or 25 dollars. This was OK, but the response
was a little slow.

For the most part, this works well. The main drawback is that the IR
occasionally misses the key-up part of the IR signal from the URC-6131
remote, and MythTV responds as if this were many keypresses in quick
succession. Perhaps disabling auto-repeat in X would fix this, but I haven't
gotten around to trying it. I have yet to see this happen when I'm using the
I had the exact same problem - very annoying when it happened when
increasing the volume ! :-) And indeed, turning off auto-repeat does the
trick. I just added "xset r off" to my .xinitrc and that solved the problem
As far as remotes go, I learned my keyboard keystroke on a Sony RM-VL600 and
it's quite nice - all the buttons I need, and it's relatively inexpensive -
around $40 canadian. Good simple combination without futzing with a serial
lirc receiver. Highly recommended.
