Me too.  I want to use the moko to control a media center PC that is 
connected to my stereo, for queuing up audio files and etc.  My PC uses 
a video projector for the monitor and turning on the projector is too 
much trouble just for queuing up audio.  Leaving the projector on uses 
up the bulb life too.  I wonder if one of the linux based media center 
apps like mythTV would work for this?  A custom remote control app for 
the moko would be best, but a web browser interface would be fine too.
