what is b+w cylindrical and slanted?

what is b+w cylindrical and slanted?
 
clues= IR2    and   IR1
and it is a USB device.
 
This may sound stupid but, I got one with my desktop pc k100 and there is no reference at all about it in any of the manuals.
What is it and what does it do?
I think it must be something to do with sound???
I need to know and I think Lenovo manuals should include some explanation about it.
Thanks
John G.

Yes I did mention PC K100,
Lenovo 3000 K100 Model 57068352
Does anyone know what it it?
This is a USB device with 2 holes,  IR2 and IR3, which looks like for plugging in speakers.
The cylinder type is half black and half white.
Why the hell include something with the system and not identify it?
By the way my system came with tv card also.

If you had a TV Tuner, I am wondering if you got a remote control with it , because the item you are describing is a IR sensor for a remote control that controls the changing of channels and remote navigation in Windows Media Center.

 Part # OVU412004/00    White and Black with a USB cord and 2 imputs IR1  IR2   and should have a IR cable is correct a  remote for the Media center and you should have a Media center remote.  This is for your computer so that if you watch movies you don't have to aim it at the IR reciever on the front you can position the attached IR sensor where you like. Good for if you attach the computer to a Big Screen and watch movies.

You know what I'm talking about! The part number is correct.
I do have a remote control for the tv tuner.
I'll need to play with when I get some free time.
Thank you for the input

I do have a remote control for tv tuner. I guess this is the tv tuner. I thought it was a webcam that mounted on the

monitor. Why are there 2 ports? IR1 AND IR2?
