This would really be nice. As I wrote in another mail, I am not too keen on
the MS solution with all its limitation and DRM. However, they do pull off a
great user interface, that others than us geeks can actually use and
understand. For me the point is to have a single interface to all my
different devices, that be my HTPC, 2nd HTPC and one or two SB - and I might
add others.

I have tried Beyond TV, SageTV and others, but MCE2005 does have the best
user experience in my opinion - but there might be other solutions out
there...

Im so glad I bought a SB - nothing like a live community!
