Is there a simple USB IR receiver/driver out there?

by on March 26, 2010

Q: This should be an easy question, but no one can answer it. We need a simple USB IR receiver that we can plug into our computer. All we want it to do is to run a program when the remote is activated. No time to make one (MAKEzine has a decent plan from Germany), we need to buy one. Is there a simple USB IR receiver/driver out there?
