Jarod Wilson's guide has some instructions, I believe on how to set up
a button on the remote for this. It kills mythfrontend if it's running
and starts it up if it's not. I have also posted on this on the last
couple of weeks so have a look through the archives. If you can't find
it let me know and I'll dig mine out, which uses Jarod's method and
works really well.
