I recently hooked up my PC to my TV, and although everything has been good so far, I quickly realized that I need to somehow control it while im on my couch... such as fast forward video, or pause/play it. I was wondering if there are some kind of IR ports for PC, are they expensive? Would it be easier to just get somekind of a wireless keyboard?

You need one of these http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=12897&vpn=A9O-00007&manufacture=Microsoft.

What OS are you running? Media center edition? You can probably make the remote work with non media center edition...but it is really designed for media center. Works great!
