What tools do people recommend for remote control of a mythtv frontend
without using a remote control or keyboard/mouse.

I have some customers with disabilities that mean a conventional keyboard
or remote isn't suitable. If I had some sort of gui tool they could use on
their PC or PDA they could get full funcionality out of their MythTV box.

I've look at MythWIFI - http://studwww.ugent.be/~aveys/mythwifi/

Looks ok, but the code base is on 0.18/0.19 and it crashes 0.20. I'll have
a go at updating it as it does look quite good.

The Mac tool at
looked very good. Anyone seed a Windows PC equivalent.

Otherwise has anyone got tips on a solution for people with disabilities?
