    is there an app that makes your iPod touch or iPhone like a remote for your tv? If not it a I believe a good idea.

    How do you propose the Ipod will interact with the TV, unless you have a media server?

    I don't think so. Though you can use your touch as an iTunes remote.

    some people thought of it via wifi, but since infra-red is not a part of the touch, it would not work...

    The only way I can see an iPod touch work as a remote for most TV's is by hooking up some sort of custom made infrared emitter to the dock connector. I'd rather just go out and buy a remote.

    I honestly cannot think of any reason you would want your iPod touch as a remote. Even if it was possible. Well it is possible if your TV is your computers monitor, but other than that, why?
