MCE IR Receiver Recommendation for Harmony 650

Hi, I have a new Harmony 650 that I'd like to use with Windows Media Center. From other posts, it looks like it's simple to set up with an MCE IR Receiver, but I'm not sure which to buy. I'd like something cheap, but I'm afraid of it not working properly.

 

Does anyone have recommendations on a good, inexpensive IR receiver for a Windows 7 PC?

 

Thanks,

Bruce

Any RC6 receiver should work. Such as:

or

And to set up for Win 7, see this thread.
