I have two of them and use them all the time.  I am just now looking to 
get rid of them because I am wanting to do HD content.  It does upnp, 
and there is also a frontend script that helps with your recordings a 
lot.  I don't know if it can fast forward or not with upnp, because I 
don't use that I just use the frontend script.

XBMC is cake to install and maintain.  It is the greatest piece of 
software for the Xbox short of the software that is used to hack it.  
Extremely well done and fairly stable.  If you are only going to do SD 
content than it is a no-brainer on setup.
