    Is it possible to use an iPod touch to control a TV? I just need the ability to turn the TV on/off and volume. Does such an app exist?

    Do you have a TiVo? There are a couple there but check out the i.TV app. It may work and it is free.

    Well the ipod doesn't have the ability to connect to a tv via IR any other way right now. You can't use blue tooth and you can't use Wi-fi..yeah your kind of out of luck

    Looks pretty cool. If I didn't already have a Logitech, I might have given this a try. But I can't see spending another $50 for a second universal remote, no matter how cool it may be.
