From the sounds of it, this is exactly what I have been looking for... Especially if the screenshot is accurate and it will also support movies.

Looking forward to this purchase!!!

Yep, screen shot is real and it does support movies including AirPlaying or Home Sharing them to an Apple TV for example.

Any ETA on when this addin will be available for WHS 2011? Like to get this going once it's out of Beta.
