Samsung Monitor Remote

I have a Samsung 225MS monitor which is used as a second TV as well as monitor but it doesn't come with a remote. It has a multitude of connections but not infrared apparently, is there anything else which I can use so that it can be used with a remote whilst watching TV.

What you want to do is attach an infrared receiver to the PC or whatever is driving the display, since the monitor itself doesn't have a tuner.  The USB-UIRT is a good universal infrared receiver for PCs: http://www.usbuirt.com/.  If you're using a set top box DVD player or VCR, it should already have a remote.

I have looked at this and it appears that it can act as a receiver and transmitter to other infra red ready equipment. The problem is that the monitor does not have anything which I can connect an infrared cable to.
Can I do anything with the following Input Connectors: 15pin D-sub, DVI-D, HDMI CVBS, S-video, Component

No, those are strictly video transport connectors.  As I said, the tuner isn't in the monitor, so it can't act like a regular TV.  What do you have it connected to in order to watch TV?  That is what you need to connect an IR receiver to.

I can use with either seperately
1. Cable TV PVR (personal video recorder with HDD)
2. PVR (personal video recorder with HDD) which also has a TV Tuner.
Both have remote controls but I cannot access the monitor.

I mean for things as monitor source, so that I can switch between say cable with component, PVR with HDMI or computer on VGA, change the monitors resolution, change volume it has inbuilt speakers or even just turning the monitors power off at this stage.

It's not a true TV, which allows you to control which input source is selected.  You will have to control it using the PVRs by turning on or off the source.  It seems to be designed for a PC, which would be sending a signal to the 15-pin D-sub, DVI-D, or HDMI CVBS ports, and since those are high-quality ports, you would not change the connection.  You also would choose the material and control the volume through the PC.
