You'll be pleased to know that MythTV has built-in support for almost all remote controls by way of LIRC (Linux Infra-red Remote Control) integration.  If you want to avoid LIRC completely but still use a remote, you can use a USB or PS/2 IR Wireless Keyboard and capture the keyboard commands via a programmable or learning remote. Some say that navigating MythTV is more responsive (faster) through IR keyboard commands than LIRC.

Examples of just a few remotes known to work with LIRC [http://www.lirc.org/]

Please look at the list of articles here for more detail on individual remotes
* Hauppage PVR series remote

* [[Nebula DigiTV Remote]]

* [[Hauppauge WinTV Nova-T PCI]]

* [[Homemade Serial Receiver]]
+
* [[MCE Remote]]
+
* [[ATI Remote Wonder II]]

** There is also a kernel module (ati_remote) for the ATI Remote Wonders.  If you have a 2.6.6+ kernel you already have support for this remote.  The module converts the input from the remote to keyboard and mouse controls.  You can also edit and recompile the remote file to configure the buttons any way you want. Search the mailing list for more info on editing the module file and you can pick up the source from  [http://gatos.sf.net].

* [[Snapstream Firefly]]
+
** Works using the lirc_atiusb kernel module.  Shows up as an X10 remote, same as the ATI Remote Wonder.

You'll be pleased to know that MythTV has built-in support for almost all remote controls by way of LIRC (Linux Infra-red Remote Control) integration. If you want to avoid LIRC completely but still use a remote, you can use a USB or PS/2 IR Wireless Keyboard and capture the keyboard commands via a programmable or learning remote. It is now also possible to use the built in kernel support without the use of LIRC. Some say that navigating MythTV is more responsive (faster) through IR keyboard commands than LIRC.
