My existing system is in the garage.  There is where I would like to
move the Revo, however the USB tuner does not have a remote cable, the
IR receiver is on the USB dongle, which poses a challenge to moving
it.  Soldering iron might have to be use!

A few people used ballicom - they were OOS when I wanted mine;

Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-TD Diversity Dual digital freview USB 2.0 TV
tuner stick.  40 from amazon last week.  Price changed now :-(

The above tuner has a mini remote that uses the same protocol as all my others.
