get_iplayer and VLC on mythtv
I've put together a slightly hacky script to integrate get_iplayer
into mythtv. Props to mythnetvision devs but the WAF with just a
simple remote control is low

If you're interested:
git clone https://code.google.com/p/mythtv-get-iplayer-frontend/
http://code.google.com/p/mythtv-get-iplayer-frontend/

Just bungs a load of xml menus in .mythtv with links to a script which
triggers get_iplayer + VLC. Simple to install and seems to work really
well here (Lucid/Maverick + 0.25)

iplayer in mythnetvision works fine for me. To get your remote to work, I
just installed mousemove and made some changes to the bash script on link
below. You can now start and stop bbc iplayer. No Fast forward and rewind
but I can live with that.
