Thanks for the info, Martin. My immediate ambitions are pretty modest: 
to write a commandline utility (or just use the text program you wrote) 
to turn devices on and off from the PC side. Perhaps somebody else can 
work on full integration, to change channels in Myth and the like via 
the TV's remote without an IR receiver, ala XBMC.
