Assuming the box itself isn't too smart about what it expect to see on
a NetFlix front page I'd guess that MythWeb (which I've never used by
the way) could create a web page that the box displays on the screen.
After that it's a matter of understanding how the remote works as well
as the video and audio formats themselves.
I suspect it's pretty do-able, but I don't have to do the work! ;-)
