I don't think that I see avahi-type resolution enabled, is there some way to enable it, RFE? switch? It would be appealing to be able to browse/specify local systems/services by name. I am sure the underlying linux kernel can support it, as I have seen it on Mac OSX and Solaris. I think (from a forum search) that some other Roku products support it even.
I saw the UPnP discussion. Thanks for clarifying that avahi isn't implemented. I'd like to see it, but maybe UPnP will provide the name resolution I am looking for. I guess I just used bonjour/avahi due to it being included in linux/solaris/mac, the three OS's I use
