The Harmony is highly configurable and works with a wide range of
hardare.  Virtually every mainstream tv, cd, dvd, stereo, cable box,
etc. can be controlled by it.  I've been using one to control my entire
home theater system for about a year now.

As far as having it work with mythtv goes, it depends entirely on what
sort of IR receiver you're going to be using.  I have a Hauppague WinTV
PVR-250 which comes with an ir receiver & remote control.  The Harmony
offers full support for this card, so it works great for me.
