    it would be extremly awesome to have an app that allows you to control your tv like a remote

    Other than the tivo remote, im pretty sure it wouldnt be possible to make an app to control the tv since there is no way of transmitting infrared signals

    Danls,

    that appears to use a IR transmitter of sorts that you plug in

    it's not out of the question that you could create a serial interface throught he dock connection, but someone will need to build the IR transmitter to plug in
