Got home and turned my IR receiver over. It is actually a OVU400102/71.
So, go ahead and add that model number to the list as needed a quick lirc edit and recompile.
Darn shady sellers
I actually like mine, nice long usb cord and looks very high quality.

HP Infrared Receiver for HP Media Center 5188-1667
Any experiences with this one? does it work good with XBMC and Logitech harmony?

That should be the preferred one. Under
Item model number: OVU400103/00, OVU400102/71
It lists two OVU's, which is odd. One is the very well supported one, and one is where I had to add a line to the lirc source to get it to work. Mine (the 102/71) is listed as a totally different part number than 5188-1667, so that one is probalby the legit one.

I got my OVU400103/00 ordered a couple days ago. Now I am just hoping it will be as easy and plug-n-go!
And now I am waiting to snag a Harmony during a sale!

I bought this one from a seller in China. Took about three weeks to arrive, but it was cheap, and works flawlessly with my URC RF20. And because the remote has a RF base, I don't have to look at the ugly IR receiver.

I got my HP IR receiver today
I do not have a remote to test it yet. Is there any way I can ensure it is the correct USB IR receiver by looking at attached devices? I am running XBMC Live.
My specific unit does not say OVU400103/00 but it is p/n 5188-1667. Is it supposed to have the OVU number marked on it some place? Just trying to ensure it is a genuine unit since I cannot test with a remote right now.
If it is a fake, then I want to return and buy another!
I have run the following
Can someone confirm this is the proper output for this model HP IR receiver?! Thank You!

Thanks! It looks like mine (and yours) is legitimate. They simply have different IDs (probably the internal chip manufacturer). I know the eHome series works with LIRC MCE2 drivers... and I have heard of Philips, Microsoft, and Mitsumi branded internals.
At least this is my theory. My Logitech Harmony One should arrive tomorrow or Wednesday and I plan to get things configured. I am beyond excited!
