I've just made available a desktop client for MythTV that uses the 
'telnet' interface in MythTV for remote control.

This app is written in Java and is launched remotely via your browser, or 
from the commandline via Java's Webstart facility.

Information on starting the app and testing it out are available here:


Feedback is welcome - this is an alpha version of the program, and 
supports a basic keyset, but will allow channel changes and menu 
navigation via your mouse on your desktop to any mythfrontend that has the 
Telnet port enabled.

It has been tested under Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux, the only other OS 
requirement is a Java VM > v1.5.
