Default Skype on a HTPC...

I have a HTPC that I was wanting to put Skype on. I have a Sony MiniDV cam (DCR-TRV17) that I am going to use over Firewire for the camera but I am having issues with the microphone. I can't seem to get the one on the DV cam to work with the computer and I only have some crappy old creative mics lying around the house. So my question is, what is a good mic solution for a HTPC setup since the mic needs to be place 10-15 feet away from the couch? Hopefully I won't need to spend a fortune on a mic...

Have you considered using a Bluetooth headset as the microphone? A Bluetooth dongle for the HTPC would only be a couple of bucks. You could probably still use the HTPC speakers for output if you configure the system properly.
