    Hello

    I think I'll get the Logitech Harmony 555 remote. So I guess I'm missing a IR receiver for the HTPC. I would like to be able to use the remote to wake the HTPC from S3 standby. Any recommendations for which IR receiver I should get?

    Thanks for your answer.
    I guess you mean the Microsoft remote control receiver?

    the ultimative IR-receiver for a harmony is a SCONI ultra

    I use the MCE receiver with a Harmony 550. I liked the MCE receiver because it fits inside my HTPC case so I don't need the USB cable and box sitting on top. I have had no issues.

    I'm using MCE receiver as well with Harmony 880. Hadissues getting it to work in XP but works fine with Vista.

    I see one on Tigerdirect as well as Compusa. I've rarely seen just the receiver alone on ebay. Almost always comes with the remote.

    Otherwise, you can always check on ebay.
