Hi Jack,

I use remote controls with some of our apps.  A really cheap solution  
is to use the Keyspan product:  <http://keyspan.com/products/urm15t/>

You can also pair that receiver with a large selection of other remote  
controls.  I have used Radio Shack's: <http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2049653&cp=&sr=1&origkw=remote+control&kw=remote+control&parentPage=search 
I have a driver that powers that remote if you would like it.
