I'm sure this has been asked before, but I did not see anything in a
search of the list. So I apologize for asking it again. :)
I'm looking at building my first HTPC using MythTV and want to find a
remote to go with it. I want an IR learning remote so that I can teach
it to use my receiver and TV as well as control the PC.
I see that the MCE and MCE2 remotes are supported under LIRC and
searching for a Media Center Remote that is learning revealed the
MediaGate GV-IR01WT remote for a good price
(http://www.coolerguys.com/840556082460.html as a reference). Will this
remote work for me? What other remotes will work for me?
For remote specs, I'm looking for something in the sub $50 range that is
learning and can do at least 3-4 devices (HTPC, TV, Receiver, optionally
DVD player). I want a learning remote because I don't know which
receiver I'm getting yet and I want to be sure it works for that. I
also want to be sure it works with my TV (Olevia 232V) which as far as I
can tell the way to get a working remote is a learning remote.
