I am still working on finalizing the more advanced customizations (modifying the keymap.xml)
The guide will currently walk through setting up the remote properly and getting it to work out-of-the-box with XBMC. The core functionality will work. Any "personalization" that would be done with the keymap.xml is still being documented.
I am planning to upload my keymap.xml file because I think it does a great job covering basic functionality that many people would like to have.
*EDIT*: thanks for the signature link! means a lot and I am glad you appreciate the guide. I hope it helps a lot of others.

Just wanted to add that I've bought two of these off of eBay now, and neither were actually OVU400103/00's. One was the OVU400102/71 while the other was actually an OVU422000/06. Kinda bugged me though because all the eBay auctions say they're OVU400103/00 and they'll just send you what they have.
The OVU400102/71 is about 3.25 inches wide and about 2" deep. It has the HP logo on the top and says "hp media center" on it.
The OVU422000/06 is significantly smaller at about 3" wide and about 1.5 inches deep. It has no logo nor any other text on the top.
They were both installed automatically in Windows 7 as "eHome Infrared Receiver."
My experience with the OVU400102/71 was terrible. I spent many hours fiddling with the MCE Keyboard and MCE Remote methods of programming my Harmony, several frustrating hours using Logitech's clunky and slow software (okay, maybe not slow, but 5 minute remote updates can seem like an eternity especially if you do it 10-15 times per session). The behavior was erratic. Everything would work, I guess, but buttons were sometimes ignored or they repeated 3-4 times per press.
Fed up, I bought my second "OVU400103/00" from eBay and it came as the OVU422000/06. Without changing anything else, I swapped the receivers and it's perfect! No skipping, no repeats. Plus it's a smaller unit, which is nice.
FTR, I'm using a Harmony 890.

I also ordered an IR reciever that stated in the auction that it was a OVU400103/00 5188-1667 but alas the one I got was OVU422000/06 5070-2584.
So far it's been working OK out of the box (Harmony One remote, OpenELEC XBMC)... I just have slight lag, but I haven't had a chance to try and fix it up
Ovu400103/00 (5188-1667) - leigh_munro - 2011-03-16 14:48
Wanting to get a couple of the HP IR receivers, specifically the OVU400103/00 (5188-1667). I've been looking for the last few days but can't seem to find anything...
There are a few listed on Ebay...but they either don't ship internationally (i'm in Australia) or appear to be another model (listed as a 5188-1667, but photos show another model).
This remote bundle looks good but the seller won't ship internationally..
Does anyone know a current reliable source for these?

I just ordered one from this guy: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250648696702&ssPageName=ADME:L:OU:US:1123
I rather spend 2 hours on modding, than 2 hours on google to find "the right one".
So i was just wondering:
Anything special I should know?
Going to read on "Kaiser423"'s thread from page 1

Just FYI, when I posted above about my OVU400102/71, it was from that guy.

My experience with a couple of HP IR receivers: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=85237
In short I had to edit the lirc, but sure took a lot of aggravation to first find that out.
So far 3 different ebay vendors, 2 needed the lirc edited and 1 was plug and play. Not having the receivers in hand, when you first buy one, its hard to tell the difference between an authentic and a "fake" one. But after physically having both a "fake" and authentic you can tell which is authentic. I'll try to remember to take a picture of a "fake" and authentic side by side when I'm over at my friends (he lucked out with getting an authentic one). After seeing what the authentic one looks like it is a bit easier to get the correct one on ebay. (if the picture of the product being sold on ebay is of the actual product they send you)

Any Aussies looking for a local source for the HP IR receivers specifically the OVU400103/00 (5188-1667) version. I've purchased a IR receiver/remote combo from this seller and couldn't be happier. I had been looking for a while and was put off most of the cheaper Hong Kong based sellers as they all quoted at least 14 days for delivery. A lot of them also claimed to be the OVU400103/00 model but the photos showed something different.
UK availability? - s4vva - 2011-04-13 22:22
Hi anyone know where I can get from in the UK? I really don't want to wait three weeks for what could be a fake one from China (eBay).
