Hi all
I recently built a new HTPC and looking for an IR receiver/remote, though it should be mentioned I ultimately plan on using my Harmony 520 remote and not the bundled one (so technically I dont actually need a remote, just the IR receiver). My previous HTPC case an an integrated iMon receiver which also included software that allowed you to program the keys and really hoping to have something similar.

Mainly in addition to general navigation of XBMC (on Windows) I would like the ability to open and close applications using my remote.

Im also trying to keep it cheap, so hoping theres something out there in/under the $30ish range.

Thanks a bunch!

I have an app for my smart phone that lets me use it as a remote. I find this preferable to another device I have to try and keep track of. My phone stays attached to me so I don't have to worry about where my remote went.

I use mobile mouse for that exact same purpose, but Im not the only one who uses this and need something that can tie into my harmony to control everything.

I know most of the generic media center remotes work with the Harmony, but Im really looking for something that can do more than just navigation. Specifically I'd like the ability to launch specific programs and specific hotkeys.
