Yes, but then you're kind of limited to just using PDAs then. I
already control my Mac from my bluetooth-enabled phone (a T616) via
Salling Clicker (http://www.salling.com). It lets me control movie
playback or music via iTunes from the couch. It also displays the
current position and title of the movie or song being played. Seeing
as I almost always have my phone with me, its very convenient. It
would be pretty cool to have that available for my MythTV setup too.
