Remote Kommander is a Kommander script that can control mythtv using the telnet socket build into ver. 0.19. With this script you can control any mythfrontend connected to your network.
I use it when I am working on my Desktop PC and want to change channels, turn the volume down etc. but the remote is still on the livingroomtable, and i'm too lazy to get up and get it.
You need to have Kommander installed ( http://kommander.kdewebdev.org/ ) and also telnet is required on the box you want to use as a remote.
Nick Rout pointed out to me that you need netkit-telnetd, and not the telnet from bsd telnet because the bsd telnet doesnt' support pipes, which are used extensivly in this script.sudo
You also need to enable the 'Enable Netword Remote Control Interface' in the General settings of the mythfrontend
Keep in mind this is a Proof of Concept so al lot of stuff is still hardcoded, like telnet port, up down left right and vol+ en vol-. You need to edit this file if you assigned non standard keys to these functions.
