Glad to see you're back...I was about to remove your RSS feed !
I got a bad experience with this media manager thing...slow, not very pretty etc..
More over the server 5 has a strange problem with X360 and do not read some video the previous version was reading.
However no problem with my popcorn hour :)

Yes, all new versions are quite "raw" and unfinished in media streaming area because of lacking standardisation and many different approaches.
