I own one, and it's awesome.  I actually posted about this a week or so ago...

-It works perfectly with ushare (no lost functionality)
-It doesn't work with myth for some reason (it lists files, but will
never play them!)
-Web Radio Stations are NOT handled through a server, they're handled
through the unit itself, so they work even without any source
