I'll plug my friend's IR transceiver. They have a serial version and a 
beta of a usb version. Both developed and tested on Linux / LIRC.  
Transmit range is ~10 meters. Serial kit is $25, assembled $30, and the 
usb $40.  They have the schematic posted, so if you want to build your 
own, its probably a nice starting place.
