I'm quite interested in this idea, but as Jan said, not everyone uses the
remote control to turn off the TV (I certainly don't when I'm going up to
bed - I switch the TV off at the wall).
What I believe Jan (and I) want is for MythTV to "detect" that the attached
screen is powered down, and therefore (I would guess) run a script which
would return it to the welcome screen or put the FE into a sleep/hibernation
