Cheapo remotes for PC from eBay

FYI - If anyone is looking for a cheap remote/IR receiver then the ones that you can buy on eBay from Chinese sellers seem to work fine. I bought one for about $12, including shipping, and it works in my PC. There is no IR blaster and some of the keys attempt to mimic the keyboard or mouse but given the flexbility of Sage IR command mapping you can even just use the device as an IR receiver and use any old remotes that you have around the house as transmitters. This is very useful if you have a PC that you just use occasionally for PlaceShifter

The instruction page is also a very humourous page of Chinglish.

Here is the device that I got:
New Server - Sage9 on unRAID 2xHD-PVR, HDHR for OTA
Old Server - Sage7 on Win7Pro-i660CPU with 4.6TB, HD-PVR, HDHR OTA, HVR-1850 OTA
Clients - 2xHD-300, 8xHD-200 Extenders, Client+2xPlaceshifter and a WHS which acts as a backup Sage server
