P.S. I just noticed that Ten even posted their IR protocol on that page so you could even build your own remote!

Podmonkey: Thanks for the note, and you're right - it would have been more accurate to say that iDirect was actively promoted as cross-compatible, but it looks like TEN is now doing the same sort of promotion. The article's been patched to remove the mention of any difference, and the comments/link to the TEN page are appreciated.

As the review mentioned the AirClick from Griffin Technology. I think that's a strong option. I've pre-ordered that product too.
