I made the app MyMote which is available in the App Store for iPhone/ 
iPod Touch. Unfortunately, it is just a frontend remote control. The  
mythtv remote control protocol is not robust enough to show the actual  
gui on a separate device as much of the state is not available. For  
example, on any menu screen you can't tell what selection is currently  

To be fair, it really doesn't make much sense to have such a remote  
where the full gui is mirrored between the frontend and the remote.  
There are lots of issues you would find if you tried to do that, not  
the least of which is the fact that the frontend UI is not meant for  
"touching", not even for "mousing".
