PC Infrared Remote Control

I am looking for a PC infrared remote control. Anyone know of one or have any idea where I can get one? I use my PC for a lot of media, capture video onto my hardrive, Mp3's etc, and I often watch stuff on My TV through my PC's video out. However, I have to get up and use the PC, so I would love to have a remote that would work with it.

Any suggestions would be welcome!

what about a wireless mouse. My samsung monitor came with a remote so the tv part I got covered, but as you said, I have to get up to use the PC.

X10 has a device that plugs into a serial port that has a RF based remote control. It can control like 3 or 4 programs on your pc, plus it is programmable for normal tv, vcr stuff etc. I haven't used mine much, I got it when they were practically giving stuff away. It did work when I set it up for windows media player and my pc-tv application.
