Does anyone know if there's a way to have the telnet remote interact with
mplayer or other external apps? So far it seems that it only has control
over the mythfrontend itslef. I've got an external server app that will do
just about the same thing for all apps, but it would be better if it was
maitained with the mythtv telnet app.
