It would be a bit crazy & may not even work but there is a chance the TLBB remote would work with the VIP remote receiver if you prefer to use it with a HTPC.
My ideal remote would be a Boxee Box RF remote but no-one makes something like that and anything that comes close is usually a wireless air mouse (with some of the key buttons assigned to the mouse) not a pure keyboard remote like the boxee model was, there was a PC receiver available for boxee remotes once but it was rarer the hens teeth.
I got this also and I call it the Vipremote.
The stupidity of the one who decided on the key codes amaze me.
Why the hell Ch+, Ch- doesn't send Pg Up, Pg Down is beyond me.
The Exit button sending Mouse Right Click and the Mouse Toggle sending another keyboard key.
Anyway with a proper keymap all can be fixed for XBMC.
There are some related issues in XBMC & OpenELEC that will be fixed or recently fixed so I advise you to read the following links.
I'm in the process of creating few custom keymaps for 4 rf remotes (and one or two mce) with detailed info.
Currently you can only grab the keymap for the Vipremote, change it to keyboard.xml and put it in userdata/keymaps with the python scripts.
Depending on your OS you might need to change keyid "plus" to "numpadplus" (use notepad++ for quick search&replace).
