I've been thinking of getting the kids a Wii anyhow,
so this might be the clincher.  I wonder why support
for Wii would be in beta?  If Wii can be used as a
UPnP client and their server works with Xbox and
Playstation, why would support for a particular
client be in beta?  Is there software that needs to
be loaded onto the Wii for this to work?  Or are there
special modifications to the server that need to be
made to support peculiarities in the Wii UPnP client?
Has anybody out there tried a Wii with MythTV?
