I just "discovered" Mythfrontend's telnet interface myself. In scripts, I
use netcat to send commands to the interface. A line like
mythstatus=`netcat -i 1 -t localhost 6546 <<<"jump statusbox" |
grep -c -e 'OK'`
tells Mythfrontend to show the status page and the variable 'mythstatus' is
1 if successfull and 0 if the command failed.
