I agree 100% using databases for holding information like the program
guide, but what about configuration? I would really like to ssh in to
change some settings, such as which software is being used to playback
dvds. My TV is great for watching videos but sucks for reading
computer text, not to mention I would then have to dig out and hook up
a keyboard to that computer.
I guess X forwarding should work for me to change those settings
remotely, but I like command line tools.
