Check out the StreamZap remotes. I read in the documentation that the
All4One universal remotes can work with the streamzap receivers. So
could a Harmony remote... which can do everything. But the streamzap
remote works very well with MythTV, and on mythic.tv you can find the
lirc configuration files.
Another option might be to use an usb uirt to control the tv
