Does the free runner have ir transmitters? If so you can probably use
lirc to do all that you need. There should be a lirc driver for the
device. If not you would need to add some kind of hardware anyways.
The usb device i had pointed to can get extra stuff into lirc with its
ir recievers like other comands you may wish to get off of a remote.
If you need to add hardware really take a look at the lirc page they
have page after page of different ways to hook up ir devices and
configuration pages for lots of common remotes. You can build a serial
attached device for real cheap embed the stuff in your phone as you
