i have an mce remote version 2 1039 that looks like this:

ir receiver has two blasters on it and was pretty much painless to set
up.  i don't need the ir blaster but may in the future so i set it up
when i got it and it worked fine. i believe i got both blasting at the
same time but i may have required two instances of lirc to do
it...doesn't look like you actually need the remote but i really like
this one.  the tv power button is programmable as well as the volume
buttons.  i still have a few ati remotes around but as they break i've
been replacing them with these mce remotes.  i was pretty surprised to
find that the ir range is just as good if not better than the rf range
of the ati remotes! just doesn't work through walls or blankets ;)
