Not yet.  Someone's reportedly porting the frontend; I'm waiting to see
how that comes out.

If you share out your recordings directory in a fashion that the 800
can see, you can likely use Mplayer (which *is* working nicely there)
to play stuff, at least as long as the codec is supported -- I think
Mplayer knows "real" NUV, and it certainly does MPEG2.
