Let me rephrase that previous message.....

I want to make a remote control function in mythweb so that I can pass 
commands from the web server to mythfrontend to control it.

So I was digging around in the source and I relized what I said was 

Here is an initial thought.  Would it be possible to pass the commands 
to the /dev/lircd through fopen('/dev/lircd/','w')  or am I going in the 
wrong direction

 >>> Initial message.
I haven't spent too much time reading the lists.... just looking for a 
few pieces of information. Does anyone know where I can find the comand 
set for mythbackend?  I want to make a "remote-control" interface in 

Why? you ask... well I have my mythtv backend and frontend on the same 
box and run the tv-out of the pvr 350 into a channel 15 modulator, and 
since I have Directv  it does not conflict with other cabletv channels 
on the same coax. Then I can tune into my myth output on channel 15 on 
any tv in the house. so instead of building multiple frontends  (at this 
point in time) I would like to make a web based remote control function 
inside mythweb so I can control it via my laptop or pda via wifi  and 
just pass the commands back to mythbackend.
