[mythtv-users] Network control?

I had a brainstorm the other day, and didn't notice any mention of it 
in the archives.

Has anyone thought of controlling a tv over the network, like through Mythweb?

My wife and I have 3 kids and we both work at home.  The Myth box is 
in our bedroom.  The kids are constantly interrupting us asking us to 
let them watch some show or another.  While we don't mind them 
watching Dora the Explorer or Tom & Jerry, it's a bit of a pain 
getting up and going to the bedroom to start the show. (They aren't 
allowed access to the keyboard or the [currently non-working] remote 
control after almost breaking them about a month ago.)  So I got to 
wondering if there was some way for us to start the show from our 
desks, or if we're kind of stuck getting up and running to the 
bedroom every couple of hours or so.
