Thanks, at least I know the email works...!

I will admit I am jumping the gun by a few days here as I don't have it up
and running. But do the telnet commands not just tell it where to jump the
onscreen display to and control that, as opposed to being able to move all
the info onto a remote device interface, leaving the TV screen with no
interface required?

I have used the telnet interface to control my Myth system using 
Crestron. Dead easy. More info at
