Crumbs! Penfold,

An alternative I use for controlling MythTV via its (completely insecure) 
web interface is to block port 80 (or whatever you configure for Apache) 
at my (wireless) router and set up an ssh tunnel.

For example,

$ ssh -L8008:localhost:80 homebox

and visit

Also anyone with an account on the home box can access the web server.
