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 great! Easy to set up and works great on mythbuntu 14. New skin would be awesome though, like make it look like a real remote with black background. The white is distracting in a dark room. Great job!

Screenshot need, but great remote Seriously great remote for using MythTV. Would be nice to have a dynamically updated screenshot after each button press (tap).
