Default Question about remote controls on PCs

Hello, I currently use my PC as a Blu-Ray player and I would like to get a remote control for it. I searched the internet and see that there are remotes you can buy that come with an IR sensor that connects through USB. I have a shaw remote that I like, which can accept different codes to communicate with all kinds of devices. Are there any stand alone IR sensors I could buy that would work with my Shaw remote? Or could I buy a remote package, chuck the remote and use my Shaw remote with it?

Also, I am using PowerDVD. I assume any remote would work with any program right?

Thanks for your help.
