Wouldnt bother with a remote personally, a TV card or adapter is all you need, haupage make good ones, if you just one digitial though you can pick me up cheap, i got a perfectly adequate Tevion/Kworld DVB card for £30 last week, ive just got to boost my ariel signal(father hooked it up years ago with no clue about signal degradation in coaxial cables and has it running all over the house in serial with bog standard coax).
