Does your TV support CEC? That's the neatest solution.

I am running the RC4 of RaspBMC, and using an MCE IR controller I bought off eBay for around £5.25. Works out of the box, but I have also remapped some of the keys - possible in RaspBMC. Hope that helps.

The £5.25 included an IR port on an extending usb lead.

If you want to build it yourself, check this thread:

I did it and it works ok.

Would something like this work "out of the box"? If not or not sure, which device was used for IR? There are quite a few on eBay
