User reviews of mythmote
Well I got it connected, after changing the localhost ip in mythtv to the actual ip addr of the frontend, and by opening the ports on the router to allow it to link. So it is now connected but like ISDN it still does nothing.

Great app for controlling Mythtv. If only I didn't need to use an IP address.

works great. The only feature I would request is boxee support

Good remote, trivial to setup. Would like to see video editing enabled in the media tab, and a send single character mode in the # tab as doing video editing from the # tab is painful since I have to type char, send, erase & then repeat for each keystroke.

Works great. Really fast navigation. Can't wait for the Wake On LAN button. I have 3 WOL configured frontends.

Works well, easy setup Using a Samsung tablet, this was working in 5 minutes. The response is very quick and key repeat works well for scrolling lists of shows. I wish I had found it before I purchased an infred remote.

Saved me when my remote had batteries leak in it. Not as good as a well configured IR remote (especially my Logitech which controls multiple devices in the living room) but great as a backup and stop gap. Very easy to configure. Except WOL isn't working for me... Tested WOL on front-end from laptop ok...
