I have a couple of old DSTN laptops, I use PCMCIA cards to put them on
an 802.11 network.
I have a Gyration RF wireless keyboard that works well with Myth, it
should work from a deck.
Have you tried a conventional IR remote? Maybe with an IR repeater?
There are RF-to-IR remote setups available, but it would be silly to
pay more for your remote setup than for the entire Myth setup.
Or do you need to have a screen visible? Hence the laptop idea?
If you have kids using them in a "sneakernet" configuration might be
the most cost-effective solution.
