Another way is map a remote button to halt or reboot.
Depending on your remote (create a device for shutdown and related
functions only - e.g. a logitech harmony), or even by using a second
remote if you have one you can make it reasonably lUser proof :)
Not on mythbuntu but gentoo, I am using the lirc irexec function to grab
the signal before myth.
