How about an LCD text display and a keypad, you could use a menu system to select different options. Depending on how many keys you use on the keypad, you could either enter values directly, or just have UP, DOWN, BACK and ENTER keys. Once the values have been entered they could be stored in the 877's EEPROM area and restored when the PIC powers up.
