It should be possible to have Myth switch the TV off if it's not  
actually playing anything and the keyboard hasn't been pressed for 5  
minutes. Whether this involves simply turning the screen blank or  
actually turning it to standby mode may depend on the telly - I  
_think_ some models have an RS232 input which can be used for  
changing channels &c.
