I looked at the YouTube video.  The coverflow stuff looks pretty cool
as does being able to use a remote.  Are there visualizations as well?
 As of now, that is the one thing I would like with my current squeeze
setup that I don't have and I don't really want to compile and
maintain beta/alpha software just for the coverflow aspect.

In that case, I probably won't even bother with trying this.  The
iPhone interface is great and the web interface is pretty cool too.  I
will just leave the TV off when playing squeeze.

Again, not to disparage the work that has gone into MythMusic, because
it is pretty awesome and I have used it now for a long time.  But I
would love to see it replaced with something like squeeze.  I just
wished I had any programing skills and could do it myself.
