    I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but I 
control my mythtv/linux server setup using a Gyration mouse/keyboard 
combo. The mouse in this case has gyroscopic and optical modes (auto 
switching), so it can be used from the couch. They also claim 30 feet of 
range (though I could operate the server in my bedroom 60 ft away in the 
living room).
