Clever Hacker Creates Myth TV Remote for iPhone

Kyle Stoneman managed to successfully setup his very own Myth TV box. After dancing wildly through the living room, shouting with glee, like a nine year old boy on Christmas morning, his elation was soon dampened when he realized that controlling the box required sitting next to a computer. Lame.

You can read more about his exploits and download the script, which he is making available for free.

I was thinking just now about this and realized that it isn't that hard of a thing to do. He just wrote an app that uses SSH over wifi to send commands to his MythTV box. MythTV being linux based...this is ez mode.
