Would it be possible to write a generic remote control for the
770/N800, which talked (over TCP/IP or Bluetooth) to a master
controller?  The master controller would know that "turn TV on" really
means "send IR code xyz" but the generic remote control doesn't have
to.  Are there any protocols to do this already?  Also, UPnP seems to
be possible with the 770/N800 Media Streamer as a controller, IIRC.
