These remotes seem to be using bluetooth to communicate with the PC and it's
probably some proprietary language.  It would be great to be able to use
bluetooth to get the data, kinda like the web interface but via bluetooth
though  perhaps using some standard language so that others can develop
remote apps maybe palm os or the such.

My daydream ;) for the day :-D
