USB-IR-Boy is LIRC compatible USB bus infrared receiver hardware using Motorola MC68HC908 MCU. This project aims to be the new standard home made IR receiver with low cost for all PC hardware that has USB. In my opinion this project its not better than other infrared receivers, its just different by having USB connectivity and being based on a Motorola MCU. This project also has an extra item, the LED indicator, which blinks when signal is detected. Everything you need is provided on the site so you could give it a try if you need a infrared receiver.
