 I've done some work on it and can access the listsings of my music and such
but there are a few changes I need to work on to get music to play perfectly and
I've been distracted with some works projects.

Right now it sporadically works ;)

 Video however must be in WMV format, and I've been able to play my wmv files, but at the moment since myth doesn't have any on the fly transcoding streaming it directly from myth isn't an option until we have a transcoding mechanism for streamed content in place.

 The 360 requires the name of the server to be in aspecific format along
with a few other headers which are only available under SVN.
