This is a fairly comprehensive remote control for Boxee - http://www.boxee.tv
* Player control
* Now playing info
* Available as screensaver widget
Install via plasmapkg and either add boxee as a hosts entry pointing to your boxee server or edit the applet configuration and change "boxee" to your hostname/ip.
I have included a power button that can invoke a shell script depending on your requirements - for example:
ping remote machine
if alive ssh in and shutdown
if down send wake on lan packet
This is the first python plasmoid I've written so any suggestions and bug fixes welcome.
