to press two keys simultaneously on the remote ...

You're using an AppleTV ?

That's ace... How do you find it speed-wise? do you think it would
manage a 1080i DVB-T stream ?

If yes, maybe I bought my mac mini too early and should have gotten an
Apple TV instead: much nicer package and with 802.11N so I wouldn't
need a cable (802.11g is too slow to stream 1080i from the mythbackend
