    IR receivers?

    How many us the IR receivers? If you do which ones do you use? I want to add an IR receiver to my car but I do not want a big bulky box laying on my dashboard. I just want an IR receiver that is small enought where I can drill a tiny hole on my dash bezel and have the IR bulb fit in there? Is there anything like that? Do any come in USB?

    There are quite a few small USB ones available usually the IR part is the width and height off a flash stick and the length is what varies most for the ones I have seen. Usually they look just like a flash stick. If you get a cheap laptop remote, like the ones that store in the PCMCIA slot, usually they come with pretty snazzy IR receivers.
