Simplest option would probably be to get a LIRC-based serial IR
receiver, which would let you re-use the 250's remote if you wanted
to, or most other IR remotes. (FIR/CIR is the wrong type of IR device
to use) You also have the option of getting a USB-based receiver
Another option is to use a suitable wireless keyboard and a learning
remote, which negates the requirement to use LIRC on the frontend as
you get the remote to 'learn' the keyboard instead.
