    Only just seen this thread - but what about:

    1) Commandlfusion iviewer for IPOD Touch
    2) PC and/or Global Cache with IR and relay outputs

    Why? - in this scenario, the Ipod Touch can control devices without a PC, and it can control the PC (think of remote interface) too.

    take a look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M--lNXpamDQ

    just another option. dtmf decoder chip could work too. haven't figured out the details but it would work based on tones that you would get from a touch tone phone:

    most promising examples using the DTMF MT8870 ic:

    another update:

    looks as though ir frequencies used in remotes range between 38khz-50khz, so it should be inaudible.

    i just contacted simerec to see if i could hook up the audio out wire from the ipod doc connector straight to the vss pin. they are looking into it and will get back to me in a few days.

    bugbyte i probably need you to verify this works
    ok... even more research and i think i've come up with another solution. this is more expensive but more versatile:

    first start out with a hacked la fonera as a wireless bridge

    connect it to an then ethernet realy board

    then use the iphone's wifi remote control features to control the board
