So for Windows, every HP receiver is just Plug'n'Play?
And in Linux (XBMC Live or OpenELEC), if my receiver isn't supported, then all I need to do is add one line to lirc? That doesn't sound too bad... But if it was so easy, then so many people wouldn't have problems with Linux and theese receivers, so it probably isn't that easy. Or is it?
I just want to buy a universal receiver, one that I could use with the MCE remote for now, but that will allow me to upgrade to Harmony later when I buy a TV and other stuff (although when I look at the pictures of the HP remote and those of Harmony 300, I might as well buy Harmony 300 right away since it's so cheap, about $22 in my country, and looks so much better...).
From what I understand, the best option out there is OVU400103/00
. But here
I found one which's description says OVU400103/00, P/N:5188-1667, but the label on the picture actually says OVU400103/00, P/N:5188-5049
. Any thoughts? Which one should I get? I'm pretty confused after reading through the forum...
