I've seen several such apps - all they do is send key presses to the frontend.
It is useful to some extend, but I'm thinking further - to be able to get a
list of Recordings/Videos on a touchscreen and start playback. It would be
even more useful when applied to music - you can select/queue tracks w/o
turning your big screen TV on...
And controlling the playback (Pause, Rewind, Fast Forward etc.) would be done
exactly the same - by sending key presses.
