...beg to differ. If you look at the picture (click on the picture on the main page) you'll see the tuner disconnected from the coax cable. You have options - this will take a signal from coax (antenna, cable, VCR, etc.) OR you can use the RCA inputs - red/white for audio and either the yellow for composite video or the black, S-video inputs.

I can't find any info on if it's IR or not, and the photos don't to appear to have a receiver. If so, any idea if it would work with Eventghost or another program so I could use this as my remote receiver for Boxee? Would be great to get a tuner for recording and an IR receiver to use with Boxee all in one for 24.99.
If you have Vista/Win7 Home Premium, or higher you should be able to use Windows Media Center. You can use an MCE IR Receiver with a number of programmable universal remotes (not sure about what's included though). There are extensions to add Boxee/Hulu Desktop to the MCE menus. I've had the best luck with Logitech remotes.
