I believe a method is shown in Robot Builder's Bonanza->Third Edition. It uses a TV remote and a BS2.

I got the 3rd Edition mostly because it was the only one available to me at that time. If I had a choice now though, I probably would've gotten the 2nd Edition since it looks at many varieties of Microcontrollers. Fortunately, the original edition is available at my local library, so I can look at that whenever I want :) Though it is nice that I have a book with plenty of reference to the BS2, considering the first robot I had was a BS2 driven TAB Sumobot.

@sean22: I believe the book "123 Robotic Experiments for the Evil Genius" has an example for TV remote control too, considering the book is based around the BS2 also. I also found this from a quick google search: http://www.parallax.com/dl/docs/prod/compshop/IRremoteAppKit.pdf  It might give you some more insight to this method of control.

Actually, this is a perfect example, it explains alot and gives code examples, not to mention the circuit is way simpler than in robot builder's bonanza
