Ah now this is interesting, I will try that next week when I'm closer
to the machine.

Having a windows frontend would be quite nice, I use uPnP via XBMC
generally, but it can be a bit of a pain. (Especially if you're
watching something being recorded.)

If anyone wants me to put the builds somewhere to download I can
probably manage that too.
