I know theres an ultra cool remote that costs about a hundred that can 
map all sorts of keyboard commands and even macro multiple keystrokes. I 
  found it while looking up Video Appliance Computers (there's some name 
for them) some time ago. I don't have the link here and can't seem to 
bring it up at the moment. It's on a site for a guy who's business is 
making Linux Video Appliances. Whenever I eventually set up such a 
system I'm going to get one.
