"MPoD offers some interesting choices when it comes to filtering music. You can display only full albums, excluding artists that appear on compilation albums, or use the folder structure as a display to keep music organized by filename instead of ID3 tags. The main interface displays music by artist, album, song name, or by customized playlists.

"But not only music servers can be controlled through an iPhone. If you have the MythTV personal video recorder installed, take a look at Remote Remote GH. It's a MythTV remote control application that can connect through Wi-Fi and display your recordings. In features an intuitive user interface that lets you control the MythTV server via a graphical remote displayed on the screen. An open source application that does the same thing is MyMote. In the same way as Remote Remote GH, MyMote can connect to a MythTV back end and display control buttons, helping you retrieve the program guide and set schedules. iPhone users can also try the MythTV for iPhone project, a Web application that can be installed on a MythTV server to allow iPhone and iPod Touch devices to connect to a more graphically compatible front end. You can access a demo from your iPhone for a look at the front end."
