[mythtv-users] Netflix Streaming on Mythbuntu

OK, so here's the 64K question. Has anyone followed up with Moonlight 
2.0 releases to see if Netflix will work natively in Linux? To be 
honest, based on the Moonlight roadmap 
(http://www.mono-project.com/MoonlightRoadmap), it doesn't seem as if 
this is out of the realm of possibility. Maybe even likely. Then, if 
Moonlight works, why wouldn't it be possible to integrate the Moonlight 
plugin into Myth such that you have a true Netflix streaming solution as 
a myth video option?

So, investigating, I found others trying this, but until 2.0, Netflix 
just won't work, and 2.0 is still a few months out assuming they stick 
to the roadmap.

Time to jump back on the dev list and start asking how to integrate 
Moonlight into the Myth code base.
