Smitten differs from traditional media centres in three major ways. It contains no media playback at all, which makes it very small (and suitable for porting to embedded systems) and quick to initialize. It targets a TV display and interface, which means there's less information on any particular screen, and a much simpler control interface consisting of left, right, up, down, and select. No mouse is required. It is also highly skinnable, and cross-platform to most systems. Essentially, it provides an easy-to-use menu system that allows the user to navigate a hierarchy of files, and view them using an (external) tool.
X10MMS is a software suite that provides support for the X10 CM19A USB home automation transceiver under Linux. It allows users to control the device directly, sending and receiving basic on/off commands, and also includes a sample application that allows XMMS to be remotely controlled using the CM19A transceiver and an X10 palmpad remote. The current CM19A driver is implemented as a kernel module and requires an up-to-date 2.6.x kernel. The program is completely user configurable via a straightforward text file, so you can assign any supported function to any toggle key on the remote.
