Is it possible to plug a generic MCE IR USB dongle into mk808 and control it using Logitech Harmony remote?
Check the package for your Logitech Harmony Remote or if you no longer have it do a quick wiki product search and find the "supported Operating Systems" section of the device. If the device lists "Linux" as a supporting Operating System then this means manufactures have some form of driver available for Linux and I would imagine it totally possible to use this remote in Linux. Even IF it does say it supports Linux it does not mean 100% will work because it all depends on the Kernel you are using and wether or not the kernel developer for your device has included the correct modules/firmware/drivers, if they have not you will need to grab a copy of your kernels source as well as several other tools so that you can "install hardware support for remote" this is the standard procedure for adding any hardware device to linux when it is not a "commonly used/widely supported" device. If you are using a Linux release such as "ubuntu" usually if its a widely used device and the manufacture supports linux the drivers will be on an official repository unless specific licensing laws prohibit it at which point you will need to compile the drivers and make sure you have correct dependencies etc.. manually. With the dawn of Mobile Android devices and "smart devices" in general the market (in my opinion) has no need for remotes like the logitech at an outrageous price compared to a new mobile device completely capable of everything the remote does and MORE. A $20 Android is at your local swap meet waiting for you to use it as a remote
That being said there may be developers out there who own a remote such as this and may be testing it!
If you find out that the remote IS supported by the manufacture themselves and need help installing/compiling your drivers I can point you in the right direction to begin learning how (what linux is all about) with a few links to get you started. I don't own a remote such as this so I cannot directly help you but I can help you in-directly with tips/direction. Hope some of what I said was helpfull or informative.
