Umm... I find this a little confusing. Web-based means "using a web-
browser"; telnet is not web-based.
If you mean "I found some remote-access control via telnet or another
port" then it might be possible to use your PDA to issue such commands.

It might help to post details of which PDA you're using & what
connectivity it offers.
One might be able to control a Myth front-end using a PDA's IR port
or bluetooth, but if it has a web-browser & wireless access then it
might be simplest to look at <http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/
There is html available which is more suited to a PDA's screen - see
<http://www.mythtv.co.nz/mythtv/?p=30> (although I prefer the styling
proposed by Mr Hornsby <http://tinyurl.com/ygjnqf>).
(PS: these links have all been posted on this list in the last 10 days).
