Good idea!

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>).
